Steyning again

Holly Blue
I met two butterfly enthusiasts from Hampshire and one from Shoreham. At the time of meeting none of us had a whiff of a Brown Hairstreak. We all agreed that they don’t show themselves unless Neil is in attendance. The Hampshire guys saw an adder at a completely different place from the one I saw two days ago. I saw and heard the Green Woodpecker again plus a Silver-washed Fritillary which passed me several times but did not stop.
