Silver In Those Hills.

Having just returned from a week with Matt in Bulgaria looking at butterflies and birds (more to follow on this), I was keen to see if the 2nd brood Wall Brown was on the wing yet as well as the Silver-spotted Skipper.

In the usual area there were around 6 Wall Brown battling with the local Gatekeepers, these Wall had obviously been out for a few days, it was then onto the valley where I was pleased to see 8 Silver-spotted Skippers flying including at least 3 females.

Plenty of Chalkhill Blues were also seen as well as a fresh 2nd brood Brown Argus.
