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 .
