I took this photo on Sunday in Lincolnshire.

Can someone please confirm that this is a Red Admiral? The colour indicates that it is but I'm not sure about the markings.

Friday 20th April: It is a PEACOCK butterfly... see comments. Thanks Andrew!

That doesn't look like any Red Admiral I've seen,they tend to have more black in the wing.

You are right Andrew. I've done some research and discovered that it is a 'Peacock' butterfly and is 'one of the signs of spring' according to the BBC Springwatch project.
