Spring continues forth

Another gorgeous spring day so what do I do, go to work of course. With it being warm all day it should be worthwhile putting the moth trap out overnight, here's hoping.
The heat of the day brought out the butterflies with three species on the wing around the garden and South Burn woods, Small Tortoiseshell, Comma and the first Peacock of the year. The woods now have 3 singing Chiffchaff present as well as many singing resident birds and an adjacent hedgerow had the first Blackthorn in flower. 
The garden also had a Small Tortoiseshell as well as a couple of Seven-spot Ladybird.
