Spring Butties

On Lancing Ring LNR above the cemetary, there is a large area of nettles, probably covers about an acre. Currently looking lush as they are beginning their new seasons growth, they stand about 6-10 inches tall.
Treading through this we disturbed 6 Small Tortoiseshells and a single Peacock.
Had it been warmer with more sun I felt sure a lot more would have shown.
The weather was cool but the sun occasionally appeared between breaks in the billowing cloud.
