Holly Blue and Small Tortoiseshells

Holly Blue, Celastrina argiolus
This morning I made the most of good weather to do my Mill Hill butterfly transect with the following result:  Adonis Blue 106, Brown Argus 1, Common Blue 1, Meadow Brown 186, Red Admiral 3, Small Heath 11, Small Tortoiseshell  4, Small White 7, Speckled Wood 2, Wall 1. The Small Tortoiseshells were all on 2 buddleias.
Afterwards I checked the west bank of the Arun and found a Comma and Holly Blue.

This Brimstone moth was caught in a spider's web.
