Intrigued that Jacksparrow's buddleia is in flower. Mine has a way to go yet but it looks like a good year (same goes for the rowan :)).
Can't beat a buddleia for attracting colins of all shapes, sizes and colours, and many more species too of course.
Bad luck about the pic but colins just will not co-operate.

Went on a little forage myself. Never seen so many red admirals along the hedge. Must have been the blackberry blossom.

Great :photo: Willpar.
Some RAs are migrants from the continent perhaps the recent warm southerly winds delivered you a few. :nod:
