Lynda spotted this freshly emerged Peacock in her Corfe Mullen garden on 8/07/18 and tells us:

Having seen my first peacocks of the year only a day or so ago,I was pleased to see this one in my garden today as it is the first of the year for my BC Dorset garden records.

Garden records are important to Butterfly Conservation so if you do not already record your garden sightings please consider doing so as it is easy to do either online or by post once a year. Full details of how on our website .
