Two lovely reminders that butterflies are to be seen in towns as well as the countryside. Mike comments that these two species have recently been more plentiful than at any time earlier this year. He saw the Clouded Yellow at the Boscombe Cliff Gardens on 25/09/2018, and the Red Admiral, drinking at a seepage at the Manor zigzag in Boscombe (Bournemouth) on 23/09/2018.
