Early butterflies

I found this male speckled wood butterfly just on the edge of the Steyning bypass yesterday. It's the earliest I've ever seen one.

And that was the case also for the five orange tip butterflies I saw on Friday. None of those would sit still for photographs though.

It seems that the unseasonally warm spell we are having has brought these species out earlier than usual.

Where do I Walk?

Mainly in a fairly compact area on the north-east side of Steyning in West Sussex, UK.
