I was in luck - as I approached I saw a butterfly take to the air and another, would they settle or just keep flying. I was in luck again, not only did they settle they posed!
Every so often they would lift into the air to dance with another butterfly and then they would land again, I could have watched them for the whole afternoon, but lunch was calling.
The butterflies weren't the only ones enjoying the sunshine, several ladybirds were around too
birds spotted today included, buzzard, grey heron, meadow pipit, kestrel.
