Yoesden Bank - 27 May 2012

Rather foolishly, after the ringing session I headed off to Yoesden Bank near Bledlow Ridge to try and catch up with Adonis Blues. By mid afternoon all the butterflies at the site were rather super charged and certainly the Blues were very active making separation of Adonis or common Blue in fast flight slightly speculative. I did come across one newly emerged Adonis with wings still not fully straightened. Probably more were seen and possibly photographed when I get time to examine the picture fully, but also seen was one new Grizzled Skipper, three Dingy Skippers, a single Small Blue, two Orange Tips and Small Heaths.
