Searching ...

Chiddingfold Forest, 1 May 2013

On Wednesday afternoon, I checked out several areas of Chiddingfold Forest in the hope of finding a freshly emerged, spring brood Wood White; though my target obviously had other ideas, as I sadly drew a blank. That said, the air was filled with impending expectancy, and I was pleased to find seven species including my first Lycaenid of the year, a male Holly Blue (one of several taking nutrients from the forestry track).

The search continues ...

Species seen:

Holly Blue
Peacock
Comma
Large White
Brimstone
Orange Tip
Green-veined White
