Wisley Dragonflies, Bookham Hairstreaks, Denbies Hillside

We are now at the last few butterfly walks of 2014

The first walk was at Wisley looking for dragonflies.
 Southern Hawker
 Common Darter male
female Brown Hawker ovipositing
 The first Bookham Common Walk had a good turn out, and on the plains we found a female Brown Hairstreak flying around the blackthorn bushes, she rested on bracken for a few minutes for photos.
 The Denbies Hillside walk was also in sunny weather, and Autumn Ladies Tresses had just started to come up into flower.
 Brown Argus
 Two Clouded Yellow were also seen, the female above was looking to lay eggs
the male was resting in the herbage, and allowed close-up pictures.
