Brandy Hole Copse

Small Tortoiseshell, Aglais urticae
On Monday I visited Brandy Hole Copse, north of Chichester. The beautiful woodland nature reserve is managed by the voluntary work of the Friends of Brandy Hole Copse. The pool was full of tadpoles with some goldfish. There were Large Red Damselflies flitting around the edge of the pool and Common Blue Damselflies elsewhere. I found a micromoth, the Hook-streak Grass-veneer, which I have seen before at the Knepp Castle Estate. Unfortunately I deleted the scenic photos of the reserve by mistake so I have a good excuse to visit again soon.
