5th June

A walk up to nearby Battlesbury Hill, with the idea of photographing Marsh Fritillary whilst they’re still around. Judging by what I found, the peak of the season had passed, with a few specimens looking worn, whilst some individuals were still fairly pristine. I managed to capture good images of a Marsh Fritillary mating, so very happy with that.

Other butterfly sightings included Duke of Burgundy Fritillary, Adonis Blue, Common Blue, Brown Argus, Dingy Skipper, Grizzlked Skipper and Wall Brown. The “Blues” in particular seemed to be having a good season.
