A Butterfly Day

Went to Duncombe Park in Helmsley today for a walk along the river.  It was lovely and sunny and quite warm out of the breeze.  So warm in fact that we saw out first two butterflies of the year in the form of a Comma and Tortoiseshell.  There were a pair of Grey Wagtail and Pied Wagtail along the river but no sign of any Kingfisher or Dipper.
