Ann spotted this Peacock in a garden at Corfe Mullen on 25/02/19.

This species is one that hibernates over winter and emerges on warmer days. Normally this happens mostly at the end of March, and after mating gives rise to the next generation  at the end of July.

This year emergence from hibernation has been spectacularly different, so it will be interesting to see what records are produced later in the year.
