Over 25 small skippers, just 1 essex skipper, 1 speckled wood, 2 large whites, 1 small white, and 1 small heath were also observed.
However, the highlight was a fly past clouded yellow, only the 2nd parish record, following on from 1 in October 2009.
Also seen, again, 2nd parish record, was an immature broad bodied chaser dragonfly and several narrow bordered 5 spot burnet moths were feeding on clover and bird's foot trefoil.
Birds were very scarce with several buzzards, whitethroat, and swift being noteworthy.
