A good year for Painted Lady butterflies this year apparently.  Counted at least 6 on our Buddleia this afternoon.

A few macro photos from the woods today.

Another attempt at Purple Emperor photos in Bentley Wood.  I managed to find 4 this morning - first time I've ever been that successful by myself.  First time I've seen one in the car park which is where people often claim to see them.  Also, a Silver Wash Fritillary (I think).

Purple Emperors in Bentley Wood seem to have started emerging this week.  About a week later than last year.  Some good views this morning between 09:30 and 11:00.

A few photos from the BTO ringing of the Salisbury Cathedral Peregrine chicks this morning.
