Homefield Wood - 17 July 2013

The visit was primarily to look for White-letter Hairstreak, but it was hot and butterflies seemed to come down to nectar very little. A single Dark Green Fritillary was whizzing around the meadow, and up to eight Silver-washed Fritillary in the woodland ride and one of the few butterflies that did come down (on the usual dog poo) was a single Purple Emperor.
