On the first walk round there were common and adonis blues warming up on a bank at the Dover end of the Hoe.
COMMON BLUE on WILD CARROT
The day became warmer and the butterfly transect revealed a painted lady,several large skippers,common blues, small heaths and another adonis,also blue tailed damsels,black tailed skimmer,emperor dragonfly and 100s of common blue damsels.LARGE SKIPPER
BLUE TAILED DAMSEL female (rufescens form) it is eating a fly of some sort.
Before leaving thought I would check on the small blues at the top of the site,there were still half a dozen flying at various stages of maturity.
While looking at these little blue butterflies I missed the bird of the day, as an osprey had flown over while I was in the tunnel but hey ho you win some and lose some and at the end of the day life goes on.
I should now say tomorrow is another day but I won`t cos thats really cheesy so we`ll leave it there.
