Lesley's Nature Watch - Peacock,

Red Admiral, Small Tortiseshell, Brimstone, Comma, Speckled Wood, Orange Tip. Seven species of butterfly in my garden in the past week. The first three of these need nettles on which to lay their eggs. If you can spare a place for an undisturbed nettle patch in a sunny spot in your garden, you will be helping some of nature's most beautiful little creatures & of course you will have the joy of watching them floating silently among yor flowers sipping the nectar.
