Butterfly hedgerows

Walking along the coastal path in Devon today was a butterfly delight. It was hot and we walked next to a hedge which was full of butterflies. There were large numbers of Red Admirals , often in pairs mating.

There were also large numbers of peacock butterflies.

The red admiral below is deep in nectar gathering .

The other butterflies in large numbers were gatekeepers and meadow browns.

This area of the coastal path had a fantastic structure, a day beacon built in 1865.

The coastline here is dramatic.

More exploring tomorrow .
