Audience with an Empress ...

Chiddingfold Forest, 23 July 2012

After a brief visit yesterday, a visit to Chiddingfold Forest this morning produced much better results. Apart from all the expected species an Empress, perched low amongst the branches of a sallow and occasionally taking flight around the nearby oaks, gave priviliged audience to myself and three other observers below. A second brood Holly Blue, increasing numbers of Wood White and reasonable numbers of Silver-washed Fritillary, including a male taking salts from the track, were also observed.
