Fermyn Friday

A hot hard day At Fermyn.  Sightings of Iris were very slow and it was not until the second circuit of Souther, early afternoon, that a couple glided past.  These were then seen hanging about in a large conifer.  On the way back to the car I clocked an Empress in a sallow just by the entrance to the complex then a male near the glider club end car park.  In total eight sightings only one briefly grounded.  Others did much better, getting into double figures!

Brian hi. The male in the photo looks fairly fresh. Were the emperors you saw newly emerged. On Thursday they looked tired and slightly worn.

Hi Richard. Yes all we saw today were in very good nick which would indicate emergence over the last two days of fine weather, maybe it's a case of a few at a time?
