Bernwood Forest - 18 July 2013

This was meant to be a Purple Emperor day, but again it was very hot, but two were seen, with one mud puddling, but it went up as I found it. Up to 15 Silver-washed Fritillaries were seen, along with three White Admirals and a single Purple Hairstreak.

As I walked out of the car park a family party of five Ravens flew over, and at least three separate sightings of Marsh Tit were had.
