A couple of weeks ago I was out hunting Brown Hairstreaks locally with Nigel. This isn't the first year we have tried to find some more local examples of this species, and this year we had the same result!! A big fat zero.
However, we made the best of it with some good sightings of other butterfly and dragonfly species in the 2 different areas we checked out.
Female Holly Blue.
Painted Lady on Fleabane.
