The weather improved after lunch so I rushed off to Steyning. At the top of the hill I found a Brown Hairstreak in good condition, but it moved around and eventually flew over the blackthorn and I lost it. I went to the bottom patch of blackthorn but found nothing. George then turned up looking for adders and introduced Phil and myself to a juvenile plus one and two year old common lizards and adults.
