Yesterday I wandered around the east end of Fairmile Bottom near Arundel. There were plenty of Brimstones flying around plus Small Heaths and some Common Blues. Moths flew up everywhere but few settled for me to photograph, the exceptions being a Cinerous Pearl, which usually hides upside down under a leaf, a pretty little Meadow grey and a Drab Looper, a Sussex rarity except west of Arundel.
