S was for a sunny Sunday saunter and a superb surprise Slow-worm and this stunning Speckled wood,

220412 speckled wood

My first two Speckled woods of the year appeared during a walk on 23 March and then another three graced a local walk on 28 March but I hadn’t seen any more until this little beauty fluttered up from a bush on Sunday. After our week of glorious warm weather in March, it’s been mostly cold and wet and windy so the butterflies have disappeared again.
