Lea Park, Thame, Oxfordshire

Garden watch – a bit disappointed with yesterday as I was indoors working when I should have been out in the wonderful weather in woods or on the hills watching spring wildlife! However, I did spot a few things around the garden; lots of bees (Bombus sp.), some new frog spawn in the pond and my first butterfly of the year. It was one of the Nymphalidae; however, I only had a brief view so could not be sure of the species identification. I guess it was either a Small Tortoiseshell (Aglais urticae) or a Peacock (Inachis io).
