Butterfly Bonanza!

While waiting for the train this morning I spent a happy half an hour watching the butterflies on the disused platform - 5 species were counted - a Brimstone, a couple of Orange-tips, a few Large Whites, a Small White and my first Common Blue of the year! On the Hogweed were Thick-thighed Flower Beetles and a Myathropa florea hoverfly.

A Cinnabar Moth was flying around the front garden but typically didn't settle for a photo.

A Goldfinch sang from an aerial outside my bathroom window this morning.
