Wednesday 25th July Hot, sunny, calm and dry (30C) Another early shift at work, so as per yesterday I took my camera and bins with me in the morning, and at 4.30pm I was out the door and on my way to Lydden to look for butterflies. Apart from one or two dog-walkers, I had the hills to myself on another beautiful warm evening, with hardly a breath of wind. There were Meadow Browns dashing all over the place, but at first glance there appeared few other butterflies. However, a slow wander along the trails that cut across the hills revealed loads of Chalkhill Blues, mostly sitting wings closed.
