Kithurst meadow blues

Small Blue, Cupido minimus
I visited Kithurst meadow on Friday and saw Small Blues, Common Blues a Large Skipper and Marbled Whites. There were many moths: Dark Strawberry Tortrix (the commonest moth on every site I visit), Clouded Border, Satin Grass Veneer, Straw Dot plus several micromoths which remain unidentified. At home several species visited our balcony: Common Plume, Small Dusty Wave, Willow Beauty.
