Marbled White at Cissbury Ring

Marbled White
A visit to Cissbury Ring yesterday afternoon following the rain gave me a beautiful Marbled White, ten sightings of Dark Green Fritillaries, Cinnabar moths and a Burnet moth pupa in addition to the usual Meadow Browns and Small Heaths, a Red Admiral and a Common Blue.
