Last Saturday I met up with Dr. Dan Danahar to do a short film about the Wall Brown in the Brighton Biosphere. Dan has been doing a series of these films about several of the butterflies in the Brighton area. It had to be one of the hottest days of the year and it was really hard work finding any Wall Brown as they were probably sheltering from the heat, but if you watch the film you will see that in the end we did have some success.
David Attenborough and I have a couple of things in common in as much as we are both interested in Natural History and we both share the same birthday. However, there is certainly no need for him to quake in his boots as far as me taking over from him. If you would like to see this 12 minute film the link is youtube.com/watch?v=WYJduaSmdLw
Although I did take the camera with me photography was not what we were there for, however, Dan did find a large Broom Moth larva on Plantain which was good to see.
