On a large circular walk today I was quite surprised to spot a Peacock battling away in the cool breeze at the highest point of the Downs at the back of Alfriston. At one point it settled just long enough to get a quick record shot. Before getting to this point I had seen 3 of the 5 Wall Brown larvae I have found so far this Winter at High and Over.
