I love the alpinas too Bekkie - so pretty and no trouble at all.  The other alpina on that fence that I'm particularly fond of is a pink Willy

Apparently Red Admirals have started to overwinter in parts of the UK, and then on sunny days they'll pop out to feed - yet another reason why it's so important to have some nectar-rich flowers around at this time of year

A lovely afternoon here too Nut - not that we've had time to be outside - busy sorting and boxing up books so that the builders can move the bookshelves and decorate in the sitting room and dining room this week - but we remarked on how lovely the ashtrees looked with the sunlight on their branches this afternoon

Can you get in touch with the Peak District National Park people, or maybe the clever people at Kew and see if they have an explanation?
