George came across this rather tatty Red Admiral while walking at Littlemoor, Weymouth today, 17/01/19.

He tells us he saw one in the same spot last year, but seven weeks later. He wondered if it was a good omen  to see one so early, but probably not George as the forecast is set for an extremely cold spell in Dorset shortly.

This is another Red Admiral emerging from hibernation, though will probably live to regret it!
