After spending yesterday and this morning doing family things , I got out for a couple of hours this afternoon and headed to High Elms to check up on the Silver Washed Fritillaries , before next Sunday's visit by Kent Butterfly Conservation members . Highlights of my visit were ,
A very active Red Admiral , feeding frenziedly on a cream coloured Buddleia .
A very freshly emerged Peacock .One of several freshly emerged Brimstones , this one a male .Silver Washed Fritillary number have not risen since last weekend , recording just 10 , including this female , one of two found , the second being courted .Another very fresh emergent , Comma .Yet again , I put up a Roe Deer at Burnt Gorse , this time a Buck .
