It was a better day, than the last 2 rainy days. Sun appeared at about 10am. Nice to actually have a walk over HC today!

Good Moth Day at the Wardens Office.

Lesser Swallow Prominent…


Clouded Border…


Peppered Moth….


Got a better photo of a V-Pug today….


There were good numbers of Common Footmen…

Its always nice to find a new moth for my list. This one is called a Waved Black….


I think this might be a Double-striped Pug, but I am checking this…


The next moth I missed. But luckily Ken took some photos, and kindly sent them to me. I have seen this moth before. But never with its wings open like this. Its a beautiful Purple Thorn, which normally has its wings closed….

Still checking out Dog Pond for those Black Darters. No luck today. But there were a couple of Yellow-tail Moths enjoying each others company….


Large Skipper…


This Essex Skipper gave Ken his first photos of this species….


We got to see our 3rd Painted Lady this year. They certainly don’t seem in the numbers, when an invasion was predicted…


Nice end to the morning. I got to see my 1st Purple Hairstreak this year. It was high up in an Oak tree, but I did get this distant photo…
