This morning I assisted at the Adur World Oceans Day at Shoreham. There were some great stalls and many children stopped by Ed the Bear’s stand. I bought real coffee drink and flakes and real Turkish delight from a stall. Andy Horton is a prime mover behind this event - see his blog.
Then I did my weekly butterfly transect at Mill Hill and photographed my first Marbled White of the year.

This Small Tortoiseshell nectared on the privet flowers for 30 minutes. It started off high up then flower by flower made its down so I could get some decent shots.
