In Cornwall and Devon last weekend (10 Jan. particularly) there was a large amount of butterflies on the wing, some people were reporting seeing 6 or so at a time in places. Red admirals, Vanessa atalanta were numerous (due perhaps to a mild winter), a number of Peacocks Inachis io and Small tortoiseshells, Aglais urticae and also a pair of Brimstones Gonepteryx rhamni which I believe is the earliest record this century.
There were no Commas, Polygonia c-album, reported, did any one spot one?
