Last Sunday brought a successful hunt for an uncommon butterfly. The sun came out and raised the temperature as soon as we reached the Heath. We were hopeful following a tip-off from a local recorder that the Silver-Studded Blues were on the wing. In what is known as the “usual place” eight males and a single female put on brief display as they fluttered amongst the Bell Heather. This all came as a great relief as our searches last year were too late and fruitless.
