One of my targets this year was to get a decent picture of the White-spotted Sable. I thought I had got it last Friday at Denge, only to find it was not that sharp. Yesterday, I was at the only other place that I had seen it before, in private woodland where I was doing a butterfly survey for Butterfly Conservation. This time I got lucky as this rare elusive moth started to nectar on a Bluebell giving me the chance I needed.
Today I couldn't resist another trip to the River Cuckmere to see the Demoiselles. I did manage a shot this time of the male Banded Demoiselle but once again the female Beautiful gave the best opportunities.

Later in the day I went onto the Downs to see the Common Blues going to roost. I was slightly late but several were sitting together on the grasses.
