George spotted this Red Admiral at Southdown Ridge, Littlemoor on 25/09/18 and commented:


 it’s the first one I’ve seen on the flower of the Ivy this year, last year l was seeing as many as 25 on one bush, today l saw 9 over 200 metres, very hard to see any, lets hope as the Ivy Flowers start to give off more pollen more Butterflies will turn up.
