At least 8 Large Blues flying today. A few looked rather fresh so they’re still emerging. The heat really built up early afternoon and as the Large Blues don’t like intense heat the number of sightings dropped. I expect they’d all gone into hiding in the shade of the bushes.
In other news the Bee and Wasp Orchids have now gone over but there are still plenty of Pyramidal Orchids around in the meadow.
Keep sending in photos! We’ve had some really great ones today! (firstname.lastname@example.org)
