New jewels – a warm morning and a nectar flow on Buddleja bring out the Peacocks

August 18, 2012

This morning’s soaring temperature has brought a welcome crop of new butterflies. On our way round with the dogs a Buddleja at Romany Cottage was laden with newly-minted Peacock butterflies. Seemingly no more than a few days old, their wing colours are vibrant and polished. They stand out amongst the more weather-beaten Red Admirals and Commas which have been flying for some time. A single Painted Lady bustled about – possibly a migrant from the continent as the steady winds have been from a south-easterly direction for the last few days.
