Butterfly-Fest!

Amazing numbers of butterflies at Strumpshaw today: well over 1,000 Peacocks, plus many others of 11 species (Including Painted Lady at last! First this year!)
Best find was a Swallowtail caterpillar as well as several Green, Wood & Common Sandpipers. The Small Red-eyed Damselflies showed well intermittently, again (Although not as well as this Red-eyed Damselfly!)

Brown Argus

Common Sandpiper

Green Sandpiper

Two species!
