Roger Gall photographed these Red Admirals on Portland on 18/09/17 and will now be a reminder of late Summer days during the dull days of Winter. Roger tells us:
Lots of Red Admirals on Portland during the last two days. Counted 22 on 18th September but at least 40 on 19th .This photo shows some of the 22 that were sunning themselves on the same ivy bush.
Red Admirals hibernate during the Winter months but will emerge and brighten our day if we get a warm spell during Winter.
