Butterflies & Field Pansies at Brandy Hole Copse

The skies were clear today so I headed off to Brandy Hole Copse in case there were still any Queen of Spain Fritillaries around. I was not alone in this hope - I bumped into Neil Hulme from Sussex Butterfly Conservation. I saw ten Red Admirals, two Painted Ladies and a Clouded Yellow. There were plenty of Field Pansies, the food plant of the Fritillary, in flower at the edge of the maize field.
