Martin sent us these two photos of an unusual butterfly he saw in Beaminster on 03/08/2019. He went on to tell us that he noticed this Red Admiral that was not red and also that it was not a White Admiral and wondered if this was common. Do let us know if you have seen one like this.

    I saw one just like this on the Rodwell Trail in the Wyke area of Weymouth this time of the year two years ago. Unfortunately it didn’t hang around long enough for me to get my phone out and try to photograph it
