The Montezumas mini eggs were enjoyed by all and it’s good to know that a donation from each pack sold is made to the Butterfly Conservation. With such changeable weather patterns at the moment it’s important to be reminded how changes to seasonal ‘norms’ affect different species.

In 2012 the Small Tortoiseshell butterfly population was recorded as 50% down on that in 2011.

Great chocolate, good cause, Happy Easter to all!
