22nd – 24th June

A visit to North Shropshire with Fuzz, staying at Shrewsbury.

The purpose of our visit was to find the Large Heath at the Whixall Moss site which was successful, and the culmination of our 3-year effort to find all UK species of butterfly (all bar a bit of “tidying up” as Fuzz described it).

We also visited the Prees Heath Common Butterfly Conservation Reserve, which was in the middle of a huge emergence of Silver Studded Blue for which the site is renowned.
