Wildlife sightings in the Montpelier, St Andrews, St Werburghs and St Pauls areas of Bristol, UK

My first Hornet HoverflyVolucella zonaria of the year was sat on the wall near the tunnel this morning. On the opposite platform were a few Small White butterflies, a Large White and a probable Meadow Brown. A Blackcap was calling from the trees. As my train stopped at Narroways I was able to admire the Rosebay Willowherb along the track.
This afternoon in Portland Square a rather worn Ringlet butterfly was sat on a step. It must have come from St Pauls Park I think.
