Butterlies

In warm sun but breezy in exposed areas, Jan Hamblett spotted a large Red Fox at Bartons Farm, a Brimstone butterfly at the Cemetery seat, and two Tortoiseshell duelling butterflies at the top of butterfly meadow near to Brian Old's seat. Finally she saw a Red Admiral on the ground south of the car park on the grassy area after walking through the wooded copse.

Duelling or courting, or both?

These will be the first confirmed Small Torts of the year, although I may have seen one on Mill Hill a few days ago.

Cheers
