Marbled whites & Six-spot Burnets at Southwater

Southwater Park, near Horsham, was my destination this morning. A quick shower was followed by great walking weather, sun, cloud and a breeze. There is an excellent meadow by houses which is a haven for butterflies and moths. There were Six-spot burnet moths all over, some flying, some mating on grasses, and plenty of chrysalids attached to grass stems. Also prolific were Meadow browns, Ringlets. Marbled whites were around and actually settled enough for photo opportunities. Green-veined whites also settled. After lunch we settled down to watch the marathon Wimbledon final.
