Surprise, surprise …..just when we had given up any chance of seeing any of our usual spring and summer Butterflies along comes this solitary Red Admiral Butterfly.
Apart from a few Whites (all types) the usual Peacock, Tortoiseshell, Painted Lady and even Comma have just not shown up. Blues, Brimstones and Orange Tips not a chance.
So apologies for these rather hasty shots, I grabbed what I could before it had chance to flap those wings and take to the skies.
Just one more oddity in what has been a strange year that has brought many changes.
At least we were graced by one visitor….even if we had to wait till nearly the end of September
