Peacock Butterfly

Report. R.Lane. 23rd January 2011

Regarding Butterflies on the patch. This morning I drew a blank at Trenarren and Pentewan, due to the bitter NE wind. Gave up and came home for lunch (Holmbush, N). Happened to glance out of the window (2.15pm) only to see a PEACOCK butterfly come over the hedge and head toward our garden shed, presumably looking for a place to roost after a morning out ! The 3 species in January is unusual.

Well done Roger. Is another one possible this early in the year?
