Chantry Hill and Springhead

This morning I decided to search for Silver-spotted Skippers. It’s getting a bit late but I visited Chantry Hill, north of Arundel. I found the tumuli and a warm bowl which should have been ideal for them but found none. There were plenty of Small Heaths and Argus Browns, a Red Admiral and a Brimstone. I then went on to Kithurst Hill car park and the meadow there gave me Adonis Blues, Argus Browns, Common Blues, Speckled Woods, Large and Small Whites and Brimstones. There were some impressive clouds and views from the Chantry Hill.
