9th August

A ride down to Weymouth to meet Fuzz, including the A350 from Shaftesbury to Blandford.

From Weymouth, we headed over to Portland to visit the Broadcroft Quarry Butterfly Conservation Reserve and later, a ride up to Sturminster Newton before an afternoon visit to the Alner’s Gorse Butterfly Conservation Reserve.

We “might” have seen the Brown Hairstreak, but couldn’t be certain. The Clouded Yellow, Small Coppers, Silver Washed Fritillaries and Purple Hairstreaks were good though.
