After a morning working at home I went for a walk around Eltham Palace Gardens.




Although the palace itself was very busy the more remote corners of the gardens are largely unvisited and so was a good place to do today’s butterfly count. There were large numbers of Gatekeepers and Meadow Browns plus Holly Blue, Large and Small White.

An Emperor Dragonfly was also present and it was great to see the Bees busily at work on the plants
