Another glorious day here on Portland and in the back garden there were 2 Large Whites and a Painted Lady on the Valerian. On the Purple Loosestrife a Red-tailed Cuckoo-bee and elsewhere around the garden a few Swollen-thighed Beetles and several Marmalade Hoverflies.

The cherries on the tree are going down a treat and both a juvenile Blackbird and a Wood Pigeon were having a real feast.

And on the feeders an adult male and juvenile Greenfinch feeding on the Sunflower Seeds.

And finally some late news, as Dawn was coming home from work late last night, she stopped to let a Hedgehog cross the road at the junction of Victoria and Castle Road. Such a rare sight nowadays.

Here are a few images of the Painted Lady.
