Local butterflies

Great weather for butterflies. Lots of butterflies around while working at Holme yesterday and walking my butterfly transect at Ringstead Downs today. Highlight was the sighting of 7 Chalk-hill Blues at Ringstead Downs today which gave me a good run around until I managed eventually to get a few photos.  The Clouded Yellow today was even worse, only managed to get one very poor photo.
