Abbots Wood

Having spent a fruitless Monday and Tuesday searching in vain I revisited today and can confirm that the butterfly is active here. 2 individuals were observed flying around sallow, one at 14:30 and the second about 15:00. I was able to watch the first individual for a good ten minutes during which time a fritillary was chased away
The third individual was flying down the main ride at about 15:30. I was on site from about 11am and saw nothing in the earlier part of the day. It was quite windy earlier and I wonder if this may have had an impact. No sign as yet of any of the trees that were in use last year being occupied.
