Gatekeepers on duty at Mill Hill, looking for meteoric descent

At 4pm I headed east to Mill Hill and spent a fruitful two hours wandering all over and was rewarded with photos of two Gatekeepers, Small Heaths, a Comma, a Tortoiseshell, and Speckled Woods. A very pleasant evening, the sun was still hot, and I found a lovely group of Pyramidal Orchids by the path of a meadow with cattle grazing below. Dog walkers were out in force after I arrived. Will look for the Bootids meteor shower again tonight, we saw one three days ago. Two foxes trotted gracefully round the garages last night and rustled in the shrubs.
