Three more butterflies for our 2019 list and two more peacock nests; things are finally looking better.

In the header picture, a comma (Polygonia c-album), and below, a marbled white (Melanargia galathea), a red admiral (Vanessa atalanta) and two more nests of peacock caterpillars. All spotted and identified by Ian Bushell yesterday. This makes fifteen different species of butterfly that have been seen in the park this year and the numbers of individuals is increasing all the time.
