Frog Firle and Abbots Wood
Spent a lovely day, with Greenie, visiting Frog Firle and Abbots Wood in Sussex. Near the viewpoint at Frog Firle was a web of Small Tortoiseshell larvae.
Wall Browns were darting about, but didn't manage to photograph any this trip.
At Abbots Wood we soon found the Pearl Bordered Fritillary flying low over last years cut field, they have moved into this from the area we found them last year, it looks like they prefer very low scrub in a fresh clearing.
