Cissbury Ring, butterfly haven

Bea joined us for the trip to Cissbury Ring, second largest Iron Age Fort in England (Maiden Castle is the largest). Views were amazing again, Isle of Wight to the west and Beachy Head to the east. Butterflies were everywhere, it was difficult to decide which to photograph. Many Green-veined whites, Marbled whites, new brood Painted Ladies, Six-spot burnet moths, Gatekeepers, a Small Copper and some Dark green fritillaries. Blue flax is showing in some fields below. Rose bay willow herb abounds in clusters, and small raspberries are tasty now. Sunny and breezy, a good walking morning.
