More Peacock butterflies in 4 days than I've seen in the last four years:
16/7 - 1 in the shrub bed above the road on Gravel Hill
17/7 - 1 on plot 16, Grasmere allotments, Barnehurst
18/7 - 4 on one Buddleia bush, Ridge Rd., Winchmore Hill in Enfield
20/7 - 1 on Buddleia in my Barnehurst garden
The sad fact of the matter is that 4 Peacocks in one garden at one time wouldn't have been 'news' when I was a teenager back in the 1970s ......
