At least it was well forecast and so I had already decided to go to the vast swathes of heather and gorse at Beacon Hill just outside Church Crookham. I wasn't expecting much so I wasn't disappointed that's about what I managed but at least I had fun trying.
Peacock were in good numbers but that about it as far as butterflies were concerned,they know when its changing,so I concentrated on a small micro known as a CYDIA ulicetana with a common name Grey Gorse Piercer and that's where you find them in amongst the Gorse. I have seen hundreds before but they are clearly just emerging so I only saw 8.
Another even smaller micro also appeared on the gorse and this was extremely difficult to photo so you will just have to settle for effort only.
Very active,flying forwards of the walk direction were the voracious Green Tiger Beetles in quite high numbers and saw one trying to sort out an ant but it ended Ant 1-Green Tiger Beetle 0
Well, once again all the best to you all.
