The lovely warm sunshine yesterday,  03/12/2019 seems to have encouraged a late appearance of Red Admirals in Dorset. This photo sent to us by Roger Peart of one he saw in the afternoon on a house wall in Wimborne is the second photo taken yesterday of this species sent in for the Dorset BC Gallery. It is good to know that butterflies are still responding to occasional warmer sunny days in a cold spell and can only hope that they find somewhere suitable to return to overnight.
