The first butterfly walk of the 2013 season.
the car park at Ham was blocked off due to a film being made at Ham House, but a few cars were allowed in.
The first butterflies seen near the car park were Brimstone, Comma and Holly Blue, the group then walked into the site looking for the elusive Orange Tip, several Small Tortoiseshell were seen over stinging nettle patches.
A Small White was seen in the distance but flew back towards us.
We looked out across the lake and river, at the turn around point.
Several Peacock and Commas were in a small area along a track, another Small White flew past. After the walk it was back to Hutchinsons Bank to walk the butterfly transect, but only Comma, Brimstone and Peacock were seen.
