Having seen Owen at the bumble bee fest,he had told me where to see the grizzled skippers so it was back to the point now the sun had emerged.
There were half a dozen flitting about but were not easy to pin down in the strong sunlight and the heat,but with patience one eventually settled long enough to get a not very good photo.
I was in no hurry to get home so took a stroll along the old Elham valley railway track at Peene for old times sake there were a few butterflies onthe wing including a red admiral,speckled wood,wall brown small heath and several orange tips one of which obligingly posed.

Tuesday at Samphire Hoe started with three shags feeding off the sea wall, an unusual sight in late May.
The butterfly transect produced the first green hairstreak and adonis blues
Several moths were seen during the day including CINNABAR,YELLOW BELL,MOTHER SHIPTON and TREBLE BAR and COMMON BLUE and BLUE TAILED DAMSELFLIES were out and about.
