I have worked from home for nearly 6 years now and have discovered many new aspects to the wildlife of my garden and the surrounding area. Even after this time, there are still new things to discover as I found last week when I noticed a small dark butterfly. Investigating it turned out to be a female Common Blue, a species that until now I had not recorded in the garden or the surrounding area. I didn’t have the camera with me but this is a picture of the species.
