More butterflies!

by A warbler a day

Yesterday I said ‘roll on the rest of the month and more butterflies’ and what did i get today? More butterflies! So far this year I had only seen Brimstones but today that changed. A Small Tortoiseshell at Rooksbury Mill, a Peacock at Danebury Ring and a Red Admiral and a Comma near Upper Clatford. In other nature news the Dog Violets are flowering at Danebury Ring where I also saw a pair of Wheatears around the tree just inside the Hillfort near the entrance.
