My first visit today was to Cissbury Ring where I had many male Brimstone sightings plus a courting pair, plus a Peacock. On the way to Ferring Rife I saw more male Brimstones. The rife was alive with Small Tortoiseshells and I witnessed many pairs flying, a couple of trebles and one foursome. There was much courting occurring on the ground. I estimate that I saw over 40 Small Tortoiseshells plus two Peacocks.
