Lynda sent in these photos of her first butterflies for the year telling us:

At last my first butterflies of 2021 seen today, 26/02/2021 at Pamphill.  Two male Brimstones flying together in the church meadow and one flew right over to where I was standing by the fence line, camouflaging itself at first in the bracken alongside a fresh green leaf of the exact same colour. Then a Red Admiral which looks a little worn so obviously not a migrant .
