From Alex Berryman

Thursday 18th July

Alice Holt (Strait's Inclosure)
5 Males seen between 0900-1100 between the car park and the 2nd Observation tower. Including 2 grbriefly grounded individuals at 1000. One between the two observation towers and the other at their favoured congregation point this year; from the car parking place walk approximately 300m. Before the path 'dips' on the right hand side there is a small clearing (more of a layby!) and another 10m or so on there is a dead tree. The Purple Emperors seem to be favouring the oaks behind this dead tree and are grounding themselves daily in the small layby/clearing mentioned. have seen up to 3 individuals here the past few days.

Friday 19th July
