10th July

A “heatwave visit” to Bentley Wood in search of the Purple Emperor. I got sightings, though no photographic opportunities. Got a confirmed Essex Skipper sighting, which are almost identical to the Small Skipper.

Back at home, I photographed a pair of mating Skippers on one of our flower beds – at the time of writing I’m unsure if they were Small or Essex. Met some interesting fellow enthusiasts during the day.
