The last time I visited Stonepit Quarry at Old Sulehay the car was broken into. Managed to avoid that this time and have a stunning half hour in the sunshine and increasing temperatures with Weedon's World of Nature.
Among the creatures that refused to sit for photos were a Common Lizard (Lacerta vivipara), a Green Tiger Beetle (Cicindela campestris), a species of Pyrausta moth, a Small Heath (Coenonympha pamphilus), a Green Hairstreak (Callophrys rubi), 2 Speckled Woods (Pararge aegeria), Large Whites (Pieris brassicae) and a Brimstone butterfly (Gonepteryx rhamni). Others, the stars, are pictured below. Click on the pictures for bigger images.
