Kevin sent in this photo telling us:

Today, 10/07/2024 was the best day in my garden near Broadmayne for some considerable time with six species of butterfly present, albeit in low numbers.  Species included Meadow Brown, Large White, Green-veined White, Gatekeeper, and a possible Essex Skipper (yet to be confirmed).  Finally a Peacock made an appearance, the first seen here for several months.
