The first obvious sighting was the number of ringlet on view at about 25,clearly indicating one of the winners from the wet summer and the lush grass growth.
Meadow Brown did not seem to be faring quite as well with about 12 on view but the highlight was seeing my first Silver-washed Fritillary and White Admiral the latter not wanting his photo taken.
Male Large Skippers were perched on overhanging leaves in readiness for passing females. Nymphalids seem as if their season will provide well as I found a Peacock Larval Nest,something that is being recorded on other sites as well as singles of Comma and Red Admiral.
The moth trap is hotting up meaning that it is difficult to keep up with events but the following have been recorded this morning and that is after catching a cat at midnight trying to enter the trap for evening meal.
