Cissbury Ring in the wind

Large Skipper, Ochlodes faunus
The rain was bucketing down early this morning but thankfully ceased and I took the opportunity to check Cissbury Ring for Dark-green Fritillaries. None seen, but I did see 70+ Meadow Browns, a Red Admiral, 3 Common blues, 6 Small Heaths, 3 Large Skippers and a Yellow Hammer. The wild strawberries were ripening nicely.
