After Transylvania I had a short break before going off to Italy and the Dolomites co-leading a butterfly tour for Naturetrek. There will be a few posts concerning this terrific trip shortly, but in the meantime there are a few bits and pieces from between the trips and just after getting back from Italy.
Some sightings were from the garden and some from my local patch. Also during a survey in Friston Forest a very fresh Scarlet Tiger was spotted. In fact 2 of these spectacular moths were seen, but one that had probably only just emerged posed quite well.
