John Hume had seen a red admiral in his garden in Newby, Scarborough on 2 November.
There were butterflies, too, including the red admiral.
Still the odd butterfly around; a red admiral with a chunk of wing missing; probably from a near miss with a bird.
These include the small tortoiseshell, peacock, red admiral and comma.
white admirals Clouded yellow, Large white, small white, Red admiral and Painted lady can fly here from abroad.
