This butterfly I found too by the River Severn at Apperley - it must like nettles and it spent some time spreading its wings in the sun.
This photograph was taken on the hedge between the Woodthorpes and our garden
in School Road, Apperley on the 29th March 2012 the day after it killed a cockerel. It was identified as a juvenile Harris Hawk - a native of South America.
It was captured a few days later and taken to the Bird of Prey Centre at Newent.
