Happy New Year!

Mark found this beautiful bright over-wintering Peacock in his garden on 1/01/19. He tells us it posed perfectly ,as can been seen in the lovely photos he shared with us, before flying off into the distance.

In mild weather this species along with others often come out of hibernation. Hopefully it returned to somewhere warm and safe before the very cold temperatures hit Dorset next day.
