A move to another belt of woodland provided flight views only of at least five Purple Emperors and a couple of Purple Hairstreaks: also present were Brown Hawker and Common Darter.
We finished the day at Dunwich Heath, where a search along 'Docwra's Dyke' added several damsels and dragons, including my first Small Red-eyed Damsel of the year. Anyone know what the caterpillar will turn into? I'm guessing a hawkmoth!
At home, the new Turtle pair were much in evidence, while the original female also came to feed at 7.00pm.
