My First Sighting of the Year.

After all the stormy weather we have had to endure since Christmas it is great to see my first butterfly of 2014.A sign maybe that spring is not too far away now, although it is only mid -February and winter has a habit of biting back.I spied this Small Tortoiseshell  fluttering around my garden in the sunshine looking for that sheltered sunny spot.It was not long before it flew on and over the hedge.
There have been several sightings of butterflies on the Island during February,including a Brimstone,a Peacock,and another Small Tortoiseshell.
