Doings at Knepp 28th June

I saw two males sallow searching during an hour in mid-morning (then had to leave to do some work, which was a trifle inconvenient).

Neil arrived in mid-afternoon and managed to see five males in 20 minutes before the sun was lost for the day.  Then a spell of heavy rain arrived.  It must be added that Neil spent yesterday photographing an insignificant butterfly in the Cotswolds.  In consequence, he has been elected President of the Entomological Riff-Raff Club.   

On this day 40 years ago, I saw the first males of the incredible 1976 Purple Emperor season...
