Ringlets Ringlets everywhere!

Did some survey work at Toad Holes Beck this morning mainly to count Ringlet butterflies which are doing extremely well at the moment.




For the first time ever I had a 3 figure count record count of 127…. and I believe the count would have been more if it wasn’t for the very tall thick grass which is very difficult to walk in…..    A single Comma was counted and 3 Gatekeepers were at Raw Nook Nr.

A beautiful male Emperor Dragonfly was patrolling the pond at Raw Nook Nr along with 2 Brown Hawkers and 4 Common Darters, 1 pair was egg laying ( Sorry for poor quality of photo!)
