Years ago, they were very common. More recently, we seem to have seen more painted ladies and commas, with a smattering (fluttering?) of peacocks and red admirals. This year, the small tortoiseshells are out en masse, raiding the plentiful bramble blossom (and presumably ensuring a good crop of blackberries later in the year).
Once again, the thunder is rumbling in the distance, over Bridgnorth – we’d better get back before it comes any closer.
