Adonis and Chalkhills at Mill Hill

Adonis Blue and Chalkhill Blue on Carline Thistle
This morning the sky was clear early on so I did my weekly transect at Mill Hill with the following results: 27 Adonis Blue, 6 Chalkhill Blue, 2 Common Blue, 3 Gatekeeper, 67 Meadow Brown, 15 Small Heath. 

I then called in at Steyning and found the grass snake and a slow-worm under the mat.
