Easter butterflies

Well at least one day of the Easter weekend was sunny - and here's some butterflies to prove it. First, the always familiar Peacock:

There were also a few Commas around:

And this one, which had me puzzled until I realised it was a moth - it's an Orange Underwing:

Plenty of other wildlife around as well, like pesky rabbits:

and a nice little Robin:

While we were up there we had friends drop in for a freshly made bacon sandwich lunch, and then headed off to to some finishing touches to the EWB bridge that was built recently - just fastening down some chicken wire so the deck doesn't get slippery in the rain:

Weather looks a bit cloudy or wet for the rest of the weekend, so glad we made the most of it today!
