Found feeding on a Castor oil plant in a calm part of the gardens.
No interactions present.
Morning Chris, The Castor-oil plant is worth taking a look at, as [in this milder climate area] it is producing pollen.
I think you'll find the Red Admiral is on Fatsia japonica, a member of the ivy family, which has very similar but paler flowers, and which flowers as Ivy is going over, and so provides a useful late supplement for late autumn insects.
is called the "false castor oil plant" by some, since the leaves look similar
