Pearl-bordered Fritillaries and Grizzled Skippers

Pearl-bordered Fritillary, Boloria euphrosyne
This is a catch-up post from last month. On June 12th I did my butterfly transect at Mill Hill and saw a Large Red Damselfly, an Emperor moth and mating Grizzled Skippers. I then met Mark Colvin at Rewell Wood where we found Pearl-bordered Fritillaries. We thought a Bee Fly was scattering eggs by a tree stump.
