Reds, blues, peacocks and a lady

A lovely sunny day, perfect butterfly weather so I took Sue for her first visit to Kithurst Hill. We walked through a meadow covered with wild flowers and saw Green-veined whites flitting around. A stroll beside rape fields produced a Painted lady and Peacocks. Another meadow provided a Brown argus, Small blues, a Silver-ground carpet moth, a Small copper and the spectacle of a Cinnabar moth fluttering around, it’s brilliant red wings almost surreal. We also met Neil, Sussex butterfly man, doing conservation work.
