A Small One!!

Two visits out today inbetween my caring duties. A visit this morning to Park Corner resulted in 2 White Admirals and a very fresh Red Admiral. Also 3 Grass Snakes and 1 Adder. Ringlets were also showing well despite the very dull weather. This afternoon the weather hadn't really improved but I decided to call up to High and Over area to see the numerous Marbled Whites. Whilst there I found my first Small Skipper of the year, not as smart as its larger cousin but still good to find this one that was already roosting in the dull weather. Whilst there the sun came out and the butterfly woke up and flew briefly before opening its wings to gather some heat.

There were also several Cinnabar Moths seen including this one that was also roosting.
