Middlesex has started for definite

Today in memory of Steve Pash who's patch was Ruislip we visited his St Vincent's Assembly area. We didn't arrive until 15:45 or so and watched the canopy initially from a distance. Andrew picked up an Emperor so we went inside the wood but with no luck of finding the right gap. Returning to a convenient point, we both stood with binoculars firmly fixed on a section of the canopy and we treated to several flights and an extended clash of two Emperors at 16:45 after that sunshine and activity stopped. We also visited Bricket Wood and despite intermittent sunshine between 13:00 and 15:00 no Purple Emperors were seen. White Admiral were about but in no way were they trying be pretenders!
