Alison was walking around Holton Lee today,  17/01/19 when she was delighted to see this lovely Red Admiral alight on a tree trunk alongside her.The sun was shining but very cold and yet this butterfly decided to come out of hibernation. Hopefully it will return to somewhere safe and warm before the threatened really cold spell of weather hits Dorset.
