Crazy but true, I visited the WWT Reserve at Welney last Thursday 22nd December and was really taken aback to see this Peacock Butterfly taking advantage of the winter sunshine. It did settle very briefly and I was able to take this photograph. No doubt it was confused by the sudden uplift in temperature that day and thought that Spring had arrived but I expect the experts will say that it is another sign of climate change!
