From my window

This morning, from an upstairs window we spotted a Peacock butterfly settle on the back of the house in full sun, where it remained for 5 minutes. It's the first butterfly to add to this year's list of sightings from the window, which is pretty good considering its a very small garden near a busy main road.


Other sightings include Goldcrest, Waxwing, Kestrel, Jay, Blue Tit, Goldfinch, Great Tit, Long Tail Tit, Blackbird, Robin, Wren, Greenfinch, Wood Pigeon, Magpie and a Pipistrelle Bat.

  1. It's good to see you 'popping up' on my Blog List from time to time Linda, this time with the Peacock from your window.

  2. A nice angled shot of the Peacock. You forget how dark the underwings are.

  3. Hello Pete, thanks. I do seem to have got out of the habit for a few weeks, trying to get back into the swing of things now though.

    Hello Johnny, they really are darker than I remembered, always nice to see butterflies so close to home.

    Best wishes, Linda

  4. What a catch for your collection this year! Good thing it stayed long enough for you to take a picture of it.
