The highlight of today was the appearance of a white admiral butterfly in Emthree.
I think there is one butterfly in the garden and I saw it first yesterday from the windows of our house as it flew round the back door. Today I saw it again several times, mostly at bramble flowers. Then, as I was heading to feed the tortoise, it rose up from Emthree and circled round briefly before soaring majestically over the hedge.
I was not able to get a photo, but the one above shows a rather worn example in a local wood nectaring on hemp agrimony.
