At last, I finally kick started my butterfly season this morning, with a male Orange-tip Anthocharis cardamines

Taken at the edge of The Coppice, where it was sheltered from the cool breeze

Many thanks to K (answersonapostcard), for her GEA and also to David (JohnoP) and Jenny (Jenny-D), for their UA's given to the Blue tit
Really appreciated guys and galsGrin

Trust everyone is having a good start to the Easter breakSmile, even though the weather isn't as warm as forecast a few days agoSad
