Lynda sent in this photo telling us:

I watched this Peacock flying very strongly up and over a hedgerow at Badbury Rings today, 04/11/2020 and was amazed to see just how damaged it was when it settled on the hedge.  It was lovely and warm there this afternoon but I didn’t see any other butterflies. I did see a male Brimstone at Holton Lee on Monday, but sadly couldn’t get a clear pic.  I’ve seen them in Jan/Feb but never in November before.
