The warm weather has seen the overwintering imagos emerge from their hiding places. Keiki and Humuhumu found this peacock (butterfly) on the lawn, soaking up the sun and sipping from the daisies. We also found a tatty comma and a bright brimstone. There are a great many freshly hatched cabbage whites, orange tips and holly blues battling feistily over the burdock flowers.
I was pleased to hear the distinctive call of a cuckoo, which was a comfort given that their numbers have been declining for many years, though we haven't managed to spot it yet.
