The second of a three part Post showing all the species of butterflies observed over two days at Cerne Abbas, Dorset.
I believe I may have been a little late to observe Duke of Burgundy this year. They are only flying for a short period and because of the lockdown I was unable to view the main flight time, which I believe was a little earlier this year.
|Duke of Burgundy|
You can observe from the scale of the Grizzled Skipper below against the head of the buttercup how small it is.
It is quite difficult to track down and follow for a photograph.
Another small species the Small Heath butterfly.
The Green Hairstreak.
This lovely green coloured species is yet another butterfly not easy to find.
It likes the May Bush (Hawthorn) and the Hazel Bush to pitch on.
The first Large Skipper I have seen this year.
My first Brown Argus of the year as well
The Dingy Skipper
A really colourful little species the Small Copper
