It was interesting to see one of these stunning butterflies during a walk around the cliffs at Rosemullion Head between Falmouth and the Helford estuary. It was sunning itself on the eroded cliff face in exactly the same spot that we’d seen one on 10 September last year (Cornwall butterflies: Peacock posted on 12 September).
Maybe, it was the same individual that had successfully hibernated through the winter. If so, it was understandably looking a little bit worn in comparison to its fine condition of September as shown.
