24.10.14 Redwings & Primroses

24 October 2014 | Posted in Wildlife

Walking in the woods I was surprised to see that classic 'first sign of spring' a primrose in flower. While I was knelt down taking a photo I heard that classic 'first sign of winter'. A flock of redwings passed overhead, arriving in from northern Europe.

The last primrose of 2014 - or the first primrose of 2015?

Meanwhile, on Tuesday, I saw a male brimstone flying around the woods. This butterfly should have been tucked up under the ivy leaves long ago and we shouldn't be seeing him until March.

Oh well, 2 months 'til Christmas.
