Two photos from George sent in telling us:

l have been out on a number of walks lately and it has been hard work spotting any butterflies. Today, 03/04/2021 on a two-hour walk along the Ridgeway near Weymouth then down the old coach/roman road into Upwey I saw nothing until l spotted some blossom out where I saw this Red Admiral and then nothing more. One thing l did notice however was how small these Red Admirals were but this does not show in the pictures.
