Scarlet Pimpernel, hail and Deadly Nightshade

Adonis Blue, Lysandra bellargus
On Tuesday I completed my Mill Hill transect: Adonis Blue 5, Brimstones (2 males, 2 females), Common Blue 1, Dingy Skipper 1, Grizzled Skipper 1, Speckled Wood 1 plus my first Wall of the year.  As soon as I finished the rains came, very hard and with 3-4mm hailstones which covered the hill. I then called in at Rewell Wood and was pleased to find a new micromoth, Lathronympha strigana.

    I think your flower for i.d. is a Yellow-wort.

    Cheers
