Here’s to my 13th blog post, unlucky for some, but not here on Collard! Today with 27 sightings you can call that a successful day, even under the cloudy conditions the Large Blues prevail on the sheltered areas of the site!
Look out for the flags tomorrow on top of Collard, this is where we shall be based! There will an opportunity for foot-painting for the kids! Myself will be onsite alongside the the North Somerset National Trust Ranger team as well as David Simcox and Sarah Meredith sharing their fantastic expertise with us!
Those of you who visit will get to see this spectacular view….
There are a number of visitor photos that are a must see, any I don’t put on today that have been sent in will be up in the coming days!
Other butterfly goodies I managed to capture today include, a basking Meadow Brown, Small Tortoiseshell, Red Admiral. As well as all this a Dark Green Fritillary flew overhead as well as still the Marbled Whites, fluttering… away from my camera!
A male Flower beetle caught my eye today…
I was also treated to a group of Cinnabar Moths feeding on Ragwort leaves.
Does anyone want to help me identify this damselfly….
Hope to see you all tomorrow
