Hutchinsons Bank May Butterflies
The Glanville Fritillaries are still in reasonable numbers, in their usual spots on the site.
The female above was a few days ago
The male above was along the cutting. Other butterflies at the moment include large numbers of Dingy and Grizzled Skippers, Small Copper, Brown Argus, Common Blue. Today had my first sighting this year of Small Blue.
