Wrecclesham - 17 June 2012

There has been an introduction of Glanville Fritillaries to an old sand pit site at Wrecclesham, which according to someone we met there suggested they had been going for 11 years, but I had thought they had been introduced more recently than that, but certainly this was their third year at the site. We were visiting towards the end of their flight period and probably saw no more than eight individuals, along with some newly emerged Large Skippers and Meadow Browns, plus an odd Common Blue.
