Don't believe we've had any Admirals either though have spotted the odd Peacock on sunnier days. Lovely colours in this well captured image.

Had a couple of what I believe to be red admirals Ed on Staverton station, not as good as this as I did not have macro lens with me, excellent detail and colours.
