The last day of the holidays today saw me visit a few places and one of these was Lydden Downs near Dover where I hoped to catch up with the Adonis Blue butterfly. I arrived early afternoon in lovely sunshine but quite a breeze. The slopes were alive with butterflies with hundreds of Meadow Brown seen and also seen were good numbers of Adonis Blue which provided me with a few photo opportunities. The colours on these are fantastic and the photos really do not show how brilliant the blue is on these butterflies. I also saw a few Chalkhill Blue, lots of Brown Argus and Common Blue, 3 Clouded Yellow, 2 Silver spotted Skipper and 3 Small Heath. Later in the day I made a visit to Reculver where I managed to find 10 Willow Emerald Damselfly which provided yet more action for the camera. As I'm back to work tomorrow and how bad I feel about it, I will post some of these shots throughout the week as I will probably not get out due to the horrible work thing.
