A Final Flutter for 2020.

 The final day of 2020 was pretty icy with the hardest frost so far of the Winter. However, the sun was shining brightly and with a gentle North wind I thought there was an outside chance of a final butterfly of the year, after all, the conditions were very similar to January 1st 2019 when I saw a Peacock in the same area I was going to now.

On the mile long walk the air was pretty bitter and the ground was frozen. On arrival on the South facing slope it was suddenly warm with the sun beaming down. A quick look produced a Wall Brown larva feeding in the sunshine. Moments later a large butterfly flew past me and settled 20 feet away. It was either a Red Admiral or a Peacock. I gradually moved to a position where I had a clear view and saw it was indeed a Peacock. The butterfly then flew again but landed in a much better position allowing a few photos.



A December 31st Peacock.


A little while later on a valley that was still sheltered from the sunshine the ground was still white, as it was in the garden for the rest of the day.



Frosty leaves.

A lovely Brown Hare was also seen from a distance bringing a rewarding final walk of 2020 to a close.

  1. Wow! That is amazing. I had my fist butterfly of the year yesterday, but it doesn't really count as it was flying around our sitting room. I don't know if I brought it in from the log pile, but it flew up into the wooden beams in the roof and disappeared into a crack! It was a Small Tortoiseshell.

    1. Thanks Nick. We had very few Small Tortoiseshell in 2020. I think at one point I had seen 2 Large and 4 Small Tortoiseshell. A pretty crazy ratio.
      Have a successful 2021.

  8. HOW I RECOVERED MY LOST FUNDS FROM CRYPTOCURRENCY SCAMMERS.
    www.recoveryprecinct.com
    Hello ! My name is Sarah O’Brian, I am a chartered accountant and mother of four from Michigan. Some time ago I decided to invest in cryptocurrency. I invested exactly $50,000 for a start with a fake broker and was made to believe that my investment had grown from my initial deposit of $50,000 to $250,700. This felt so good as the investment grew rapidly in just a few weeks. When it was time to take my profit, my withdrawal request was denied. Later on after much vain efforts,i realized that I might never get my money back.
    I discovered that i had been a victim of cryptocurrency scam.

    My boss at work noticed how frustrated I was so I had to open up to him about my encounter with scammers. He linked me up with Recovery Precinct, so I looked up their website and filled the contact form. They responded Swiftly and requested for details of the fraud.
    To my greatest surprise, my lost funds was recovered directly to my wallet address in less than 24hours. I don’t know how they did it but it was amazing.

    Recovery Precinct is a financial regulator, private investigation and fund recovery body. They warned that these types of scams involving bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies or fake merchants are becoming common lately and targeted victims come from different parts of the world.

    I am sharing this to save someone out there from a lifetime disaster.

    You can contact these group of Cybercrime fighters via this link:

    Thanks.
