Now that was a surprise!

Not sure I can add it to my butterfly year list but found a Small White this evening, in the bottom of my fridge!
Clearly there must have been a pupae in the broccoli or cabbage which had hatched and the adult then perished (prob a mixture of cold, lack of light and nectar) but not before it had managed to fully pump up it's wings. I've found several catapillars in broccoli before but I'm more surprised that a pupae managed to hatch in the cold of a fridge!
