Friday 1st June 2018 - Lancelot Clark Storth 1200hrs to 1600hrs
Needed to survey this area for the long lost "Fly Orchids". I must have done it before a hundred times, but just thought with this year being a really good year that maybe!
It turned out OK because I wanted to try and get a photo of the underwing of the Small Pearl Bordered Fritillary butterfly which I did manage to do, although every photo looks very bright. But I do need this photo to compile a recognition page of distinguishing marks etc between the rare Pearl Bordered and the far more common Small Pearl Bordered. There are Small Pearl Bordered all over the place at the moment. I really love this beautifully marked creature it is so special. I will put a photo on here later today.
Also managed to record a new spot for the "Flea Sedge" just a clump of 6" diameter and nothing at all elsewhere!
All afternoon I could hear distant rumbles of thunder FINISHED OFF DASHING OUT TO THE COMMON ON HUTTON ROOF CHECKING OUT ORCHIDS!! COME BACK LATER TODAY
