First butterfly at last!

What is this thing? It seems vaguely familiar. There were a few of them flying around on the shore edge. Lovely Peacocks.

Another nice find this morning was this group of ladybirds. I'd spent some time looking for them in bark cracks earlier in the year but by chance I ended up in the right place while looking for flies on sunny tree trunks this morning.

Species encountered this year so far - additions:
629 lep-moth Alucita hexadactyla Twenty-plume Moth
630 lep-moth Diurnea fagella A micromoth
631 coleoptera Calvia quattuordecimguttata Cream-spot Ladybird
632 lep-butterfly Aglais io Peacock
