Early Spring on the Marshes

On the last Bird Survey on Sunday 16th March, we were counting butterflies as well as birds!

David Cottridge captured some early Spring images including these two views of a Comma butterfly – I don’t think I had seen before the white mark (shaped like a comma) on the underwing that gives the butterfly its common name.

Not forgetting the flowers – this is a  Lesser Celandine (I confess I couldn’t have named it).

P.S. Don’t forget to click on the images to enlarge them (another click will enlarge an image further).
