“When walking around the RSPB Lodmoor nature reserve I usually pause for a while at the north-west corner, which is good for butterflies. As I approached this spot on Easter Monday, a Brimstone flew past in the warm spring sunshine and then a Peacock alighted on a fine stand of willow catkins, followed by this Comma, the first I have seen this year.”
