Sundays walk at Banstead Downs was in dull weather, we saw the Small Blue, and a few other things of interest.
A very nice blue form of female Common Blue, with a non standard underside forewing, and the rare flower the Early Gentian.
The Hutchinsons Bank walk was in better weather, and started with Common Blues
Most of the females seem to be the blue form this year. Small White, Grizzled and Dingy Skippers were also seen, and a Painted Lady, settled for a few seconds at our feet, but flew off before we could take any pictures, and was never seen again. The first Large Skippers of the year were seen along to cutting.
