Two photos from Brian sent in telling us:

I have not seen any butterflies in our garden at Harman’s Cross for the past 2 weeks, possibly due to the dreadful weather. Today, 07/11/2023 is sunny and a bit warmer, so I went out in the garden to take a look and saw a Red Admiral and a Speckled Wood. The weather is due to be wet and windy again from tomorrow so maybe these will be our last garden sightings of 2023?
