No Large Blues seen today. A relentless wind with up to 30mph gusts kept everything down and sheltered.
I did find a Common Blue struggling to hold on to the grass it had tried to take shelter in, so I offered it my finger to warm up on and gave it a bit of cover before putting it in a more sheltered bit of grass. I like to think it was thankful and knew what i was doing, but in reality it was probably just thinking “please don’t eat me!”
It should hopefully brighten up next week so fingers crossed for better numbers. And do remember the Glastonbury festival could potentially cause traffic problems from Wednesday onwards, so plan your route if visiting.
