4th June - 12th June 2016

Again with it being the height of the breeding season Donna & myself concentrated on looking for Butterflies & Dragonflies & the occasional mothing when weather allowed....The weekend of the 4th-5th we stayed fairly local with Stockton Cutting,Warks providing us with cracking views of White-legged Damselfly,Grizzled Skipper,Dingy Skipper,Small Blue,Brimstone,Green Hairstreak etc & a bonus Small Elephant Hawkmoth trapped by Adam Archer at Grendon which he kindly allowed us to go & photograph.....

On the 11th June we took a chance on the weather & headed for Cramer Gutter hoping for Dragonflies but the weather turned as we got on site & apart from 2 Broad Bodied Chaser & a few Azure Damsels we had nothing,but just as we were heading off we found some Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary which gave fantastic views with the bonus of them being new for Donna.......
