New Forest insects

A suberb (hot) weekend in the New Forest based near Godshill in the NW. These were all taken in the area of Ditchend Brook, Great Cockley Plain and Must Thorn Bottom. I just love those New Forest names - we didn't get chance to visit Burnt Balls but did get into Cockley Bushes briefly!
