Adonis BlueIt blew a gale last night and having been confined to the flat for over a day by the rain, I visited Cissbury Ring this afternoon. In spite of some drizzle there were plenty of butterflies around. They were mainly Meadow Browns and Chalkhill Blues with an Adonis Blue, Small Heaths and a White.
