Brian has sent us his first photo this year of a butterfly in his garden at Harman’s Cross with the following comments:

This is the third species we have seen in the garden so far this year, the other two being Red Admiral and Comma. To match our total for 2019 we will have to see a further 24 species in the garden. Spring must be nearly upon us.

PS  This posting was sent out earlier today showing the name of the butterfly as a Red Admiral – entirely my error for which I apologise (John East)
