However, down the main ride, strangely no white admirals, but a few silver washed fritillaries, shown below ensuring another generation. Also, a few purple hairstreaks visible with the naked eye, enhanced with binoculars at the top of oaks. A quick search for purple emperors proved fruitless, but a good session, however. A brown and a migrant hawker also spotted as a few goldcrests called from the pines near the carpark and chiffchaffs did what it says on the tin.
