S was for a sunny Sunday saunter and a superb surprise Slow-worm and this stunning 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.
I saw my first speckled wood around the same time as you, and several since then. Sadly, the most recent was a deceased, but still very pretty, one on the kitchen window-sill, a couple of days ago.

That’s sad but also sweet, as if Nature left you a little present. Let’s hope the warming weather brings us more butterflies soon.
