Newly emerged butterflies

 After yesterdays biblical downpour - 25mm of rain - it was good to be able to walk around the Horsefield.  Warm, today but overcast and with a cool wind from the north.  Everything is much more grown up now.  There are still not many butterflies on the wing but there were freshly minted, newly emerged small tortoiseshells and red admirals.

  • Small tortoishells 15
  • small white  3
  • Red Admiral  3
  • Small Heath 2
  • Mother Shipton's  2 
  • Yellow Shell moth 2
