Sunday 10th August
Am I giving of some butterfly attracting pheromone (don't even bother commenting Ross)?! Another Small Tortoishell, rather fragile and worn was seen as I trotted out with my eldest this afternoon. In the saluborious location of St. Margaret's Church car park, Barming he played on the heaped up roadstone with his tractor, only to point out a butterfly (as he has always been told!) basking on a lump of tarmac - this is now my 15th record for the year, and another new location. There are swathes of nettles in this area so hopefully it's carried out it's life purpose and laid some eggs to bolster the population for next year.
