Elaine thoughtfully set up this fruit feeding station in her garden at Broadstone around 20/09/17.
The Peacock and Red Admirals can enjoy this feast which will help to sustain them throughout winter hibernation until they reappear on a warm day in the early Spring. Sheds, garages, outhouses and even spare bedrooms are favourite hibernation spots.
If you are lucky enough to have one, it will be a joy to look forward too, watching it wake up in 2018.
Check out this beautiful Garden Tiger moth, photographed in a garden in Poole on 31/08/2015.

An area which was an old school field in Poole has been turned by the Borough Council into a public open space, complete with a wildlife area, a large pond and a wetland area. It is off North Road, behind the Bournemouth and Poole College site.
Paul Cobb has sent us this lovely photo of a Peacock taken there and reports there were Brimstones visible as well. We hope more butterflies will make use of the area later in the year, so if you live in the area, please visit the site when you can and report any butterfly sighting to us via our Sightings page.
