A Purple Lunch

Could only manage an hour or so around lunchtime on Thursday so wandered through the local sallow scrub up to an identified high spot here near Odiham. Managed four male sightings (one very clearly sallow searching) and a female in and around the lightly wooded scrub but nothing at the high point.

It's certainly worth looking at any patches of land with decent sallow coverage in central southern England, however close they are to recognised Purple colonies. Was quite surprised to get a reasonably high count in such a short space of time at this stage of the season.
