Each year I do a butterfly survey in a private woodland to check on the progress of a re-introduction program of Pearl-bordered Fritillaries.
In doing the surveys there are always plenty of other interesting insects to look out for though and this year there have been many highlights, some of which have already been posted. However, there are still some that I haven't posted, mainly moths and common butterflies.
Later in the year there was a moth trap run and several interesting moths were caught with the stars being a couple of Dark Crimson Underwing.
Male Meadow Brown.
Female White-legged Damselfly.
Female Marbled White.
