Spring Back on Track.

A sunny day at Walters Copse and any sheltered spot was sure to turn up a Peacock butterfly.Signs of spring were confirmed by more general activity, as hoverflies and beeflies seemed to be everywhere as well as bumblebees.Some Common Carder,Tree,Buff-tailed and a Red-tailed bumblebees were seen.
No sign however of any Brimstone or newly emerged butterflies although Comma and Red Admirals came out to bask in the sun and nectar on the sallow blooms.
