Butterflies, butterflies!!

We went outside the front door and on the wall of the house were loads of butterflies sunning themselves.  I suppose the wall was warm and they were attracted to that, but I have never seen it before.



And then there were probably a hundred or more on the Buddleia.  They were mostly Tortoiseshells.


Also we saw several Peacock butterflies.


together with the occasional Red Admiral


And a Large White Butterfly


There were also some smaller butterflies maybe Fritillaries but I didn’t manage to photograph them.  Good job I still have my “Observer book of Butterflies” to look up the different species.

We still have some vacancies in the B&B in August and September so contact us for more details.
