This is only the second butterfly photo sent to us this year and is another Peacock but this one was In Bournemouth – Donald sent this one in telling us:

I wasn’t expecting to post any butterflies just yet but yesterday, 20/02/2021 I heard a fluttering against our patio window and found this Peacock butterfly staggering around and fluttering. This isn’t the first time I have seen Peacocks in February. Two years ago whilst cutting gorse on a heathland work party I came across one in the gorse litter.
