Butterflies of South Essex

We have some good Butterflies locally and a very pleasant walk around Belfairs Woods on Saturday resulted in excellent views of White Admiral, Purple Hairstreak and a few remaining Heath Fritillaries. Still looking foreard to the day we start getting Purple Emperors and Silver-washed Fritillaries floating up and down the woodland rides.

Nearby Benfleet Downs is a hotspot for White-letter Hairstreaks and about six were seen on and around the usual Bramble patches whilst Marbled Whites and Esex Skippers were in the grassland.

A very pleasant day with the butties.
