Nothing for it but to look at what photos I was taking this time last year. What a difference in the weather!
I had a day out down to Devon with some birding friends. Only, at this time of year (7th July), we had butterflies in mind rather than birding. We visited a place called Dunsford where the rare and local High Brown Fritillary is to be found. The tell tale thing to look out for with this butterfly is that the third spot in from the edge is both smaller than the others and slightly set in.
