Mark sent in this photo of a Red Admiral telling us:

Had a pretty dire walk around Motcombe Meadows this afternoon, 10/07/2024 with very little on the wing in the strong wind and little sunshine.  However, I find it amazing that a perfectly fresh Red Admiral such as this can turn up given the weather we have had in the past few days. Such incredible insects!
