As its name suggests the speckled wood is found in dappled sunlight in woodland, flying up to the treetops to feed on honeydew produced by aphids. The butterfly lays its eggs on a range of grasses that the caterpillars feed on. Although predominantly a woodland butterfly they can also be found in hedgerows and gardens.
The NWT Foxley Wood
in the North Norfolk Woods Living Landscape Area and NWT Lower Wood, Ashwellthorpe
in the Claylands Living Landscape Area are good places to look for speckled wood butterflies.
