Brian sent us these two photos taken in his garden commenting as follows:

Spring at last?  Despite a rather windy day it felt distinctly warmer here in Harman’s Cross today, 10/05/2021.  The sunshine brought out our first sightings of Small Copper and Green-veined White in our garden bringing our garden species total to 11 so far this year. Other butterflies in the garden today were Speckled Wood, Orange Tip, Holly Blue and Large White.
