Four ringlets and a rabbit

It’s Big Butterfly Count time, so I thought I’d see what was flying at Butts Piece. Dark skies and recent showers didn’t help, and there was no sign of the Common Blues or Marbled Whites that were there recently, though there were large numbers of Gatekeepers and Ringlets. Here are some of the butterflies there in the last few days:

Comma (Polygonia c-album)Gatekeeper (Pyronia tithonus), m.Common Blue (Polyommatus icarus), m.Large Skipper (Ochlodes faunus), m.Red Admiral (Vanessa atalanta)Marbled White (Melanargia galathea), m.Ringlet (Aphantopus hyperantus)
