From mating to egg laying the Large Blue daily activities are in full swing. Today I had 21 sightings, largely off the main track, above the meadow and the Quarry. The warming up of the ground has meant wonders for the Large Blue, even with a slight breeze sightings still occurred, although they largely (but not all) occurred from 10:00-14:00.
I think today we can allow the pictures to speak for themselves!
Matthew Oates also decided to swing by and was lucky enough to see a Hummingbird Hawk moth lay an egg and saw the wealth of Large Blues on a walk of the site! Why not do the same and join us on Collard!
Don’t forget the open day this Sunday 10 am at Collard, there will even be opportunities for Foot painting for anyone who fancies a bit of family fun… say hello to the Kestrel!
I shall look forward to meeting lots of you over the coming days
P.S anyone who wants to email pictures from their visit whether it be a Large Blue or not, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
