White Letter Hairstreak, 12th July

Submitted by Wildlife Field… on Sun, 12th Jul 2020, 6:12pm

This is a report of a sighting rather than a full blog. I had a short walk from home today and explored a field close to woodland to look at butterflies. I thought I might get photos of a Small Copper but was delighted when I spotted a White Letter Hairstreak on ragwort!! The first one I saw flew away before I could get good pictures. I looked around for others and had almost given up when I saw two of them and they let me get really close for photos. I was so excited!!

See photos here.
