Chantry Blues and Browns

Meadow Brown, Maniola jurtina on Scabius
On Friday I headed to Chantry Hill hoping to find Silver-spotted skippers. I didn't find any but there were plenty of Brown Argus at the bottom of the hill. There were two Walls on the top path. I then called in at nearby Kithurst Hill where the Chalkhill Blues are still to be seen.
