Brockholes NR LWT - 23-25th July 2013: Butterflies
Up to 3 White-letter Hairstreaks have been seen together by the famous Bramble patch by Boilton Wood. I have also seen another 2 different individuals at least including a very tatty female type with almost no orange to the under-hindwing whatsoever! These are my favourite UK (that I have seen...I think Marsh or Glanville Fritillary might edge it when I see them!) so to be able to spend most of the day surrounded by several individuals on my local patch was excellent!
