31st March

A ride to Portland to meet with my old mate (and fellow enthusiast of the natural world) Fuzzy. The aim of the day was to find the Large Tortoiseshell, a species that appears to be re-establishing itself in the UK. Portland has had sightings over recent years, especially centred around the Church Ope Cove area.

After spending several hours, we got a sighting. We both pleased, but wanted more. We vowed to come back a couple of days later.
