butterfly count mark II

A second attempt at counting butterflies resulted in one small white, two speckled woods and a red admiral in the 15 minute observation period. Strange, as when I’m looking for birds there are loads of butterflies…

I also took another stroll up on Hailstorm Hill above Balladen. This was drowning in butterflies again, with over 30 small tortoiseshells and the odd ringlet, small white and meadow brown. Pity this lot weren’t on the lane.
