Mike and I seemed to hit the Hills and Holes a on a perfect day today. Perhaps the wind could have been a bit calmer to make the photography a bit easier but there were few complaints as butterflies were abundant, particularly the Marbled Whites and Six-spot Burnets.
In addition to those pictured below we saw Small and Essex Skippers, Small Tortoiseshell, Red Admiral, Speckled Wood, Common Blue, Large White, Small Copper Meadow Brown, Gatekeeper, Small Heath, Shaded Broad-bar and a Brown Hawker.
