Small Blue, cygnets and a rainbow

Small Blue, Cupido minimus
Yesterday I checked out Kithurst Meadow and met Susie and Neil. I found my target species, a Small Blue just before the rain came down, then diverted to Arundel WWT. There were two families of  Canada Goose cygnets by the boat area and Cootlings by the Sand Martin hide. Then the rains came again.
