Rare butterfly recorded

Our neighbour, Malcolm Easton, keeps an eye on our garden and orchard when we’re away. Earlier this month he spotted this rare and unusual White-letter Hairstreak butterfly (so named because of the ‘W’ under the wings). Only five have been recorded in North Devon in the past 30 years.
