A very vibrant photo from Ann sent in telling us:

I attach a photo of a Peacock in our Corfe Mullen back garden today, 11/09/2020.  We’ve had quite a few white butterflies visiting recently, laying eggs on the Nasturtium plants we grow for them, and enjoying the Verbena Bonariensis, Nasturtium and Viola flowers.  However, it was very nice to see this Peacock arrive this morning as we have seen very few of these and even fewer Small Tortoiseshell, Brimstone, Commas etc this year.
