A sense of belonging
Over the past few days the butterflies have been out in abundance, making the most of the glorious weekend we enjoyed. Amongst the Peacocks, Small Tortoiseshells, Large Whites, etc, I have seen several Red Admirals. Big, flashy and unmissable, thanks to their black wings set off with eye-catching reddish-orange and white pattern, Red Admirals are summer migrants that travel here largely from Africa. I used to see lots, but since moving to Birmingham, I don’t see many, sadly.
