Isle of Wight 'is a top place to spot butterflies'

A spot on the Isle of Wight has been described as one of the best places in the UK to spot butterflies.

According to a report in the Guardian, Compton Bay is a "lovely" place to go along and enjoy the company of the creatures.

Writing for the newspaper, Matthew Oates noted that the reputation of butterflies has changed over the course of the last couple of decades.

He explained that this means they are now deemed to be "cool" - and those who enjoy spotting the animals no longer feel ashamed of their habit.

"It is clear that butterflies can act as a major conduit into nature - a world so vast, beautiful and awesome that we need a hand to hold," commented Mr Oates.

Butterfly and Fountain World could be a popular destination for those on Isle of Wight holidays who want to spot the creatures, as it is home to hundreds of butterflies.
