I was surprised the other day whilst at Kingsdown watching the Long tailed Blues how many other butterflies were still on the wing. I had assumed that most would have gone over by now but it was nice to see c10 Adonis Blue, c4 Chalkhill Blue, c10 Common Blue, 2 Small Tortoiseshell, 3 Small Copper, 1 Brimstone, 3 Speckled Wood and a few Small and Large White just about flying about. As the sun was shining I took a few shots as ever with some pleasing results.
I met Tony Morris on site who pointed out a couple of gardens which had hundreds, if not thousands of tiny Autumn Lady's - tresses, a member of the Orchid family. I have never seen these before and grabbed a couple of shots for the record.
