First butterfly of the year

Is it too soon to start my 2010 list? Surprised a Peacock in the wood shed yesterday which flashed its wings at me and made that scratching sound to warn me off. Put it back amongst next winter's logs. Or do they need to be in flight to count? Haven't decided on the rules yet, or even if I have a list really ......

A small tortoiseshell appeared in our office yesterday. I put it in the garage, so hopefully it will be ready to come out in the spring and produce some caterpillars!
