Ann has sent us these two photos taken in Corfe Mullen with the following comments:

I was surprised to see in our garden today, 06/10/2020 a Red Admiral and a rather tatty Large White on our Buddleia in the rain. Later, on my walk I saw 3 Speckled Woods as well, very nice for this late in the year.
