Posting this on a very wet grey day, this beautiful Brown Argus is a lovely reminder of sunny days! Peter spotted this butterfly in his garden at Alderney on 19/07/18.

The adults emerge first in central and southern England in early May, peaking at the end of May and beginning of June, and giving rise to a second brood that emerges at the end of July and into August.
