Green-veined White Butterfly (Pieris napi)
This female is the first I have seen this Spring. I think it had not long emerged from Chrysalis.
The warm weather is certainly bringing out the first species in quite promising numbers already.
A good year for butterflies is certainly needed after the recent few years.
The Brimstone (Gonepteryx rhamni) are feeding on any flower it can find including the Blackthorn and Dandelion.
This first Peacock (Inachis io) was spending all its time sunning itself on a stony track.
Some Peacock like the one below, although in poor condition was still flying and eating where it could.
