George tells us that he ventured out yesterday afternoon 03/11/2019 on a beautiful, warm, sunny day after a very stormy night. He went up the Old Coach Road at Upwey, Weymouth where he spotted four Red Admirals and one Comma on 2 Ivy bushes. The first picture shows the Red Admiral still looking great after all the stormy weather and the second photo shows a Comma in the foreground and Red Admirals near the top of the Ivy plant set against a clear blue sky.
