30 Days Wild: Day 24 Butterflies

Although it was overcast (so not so good fro photographs!), we popped over to Fermyn for a short stroll. Several purple Emperors flitted above our heads, refusing to land for very long. We were surprised about the number of ringlets we saw along the rides, and were incredibly happy to catch our first glimpse of a marbled white and silver-washed fritillary. We will be returning tomorrow with hopefully more time to spare and some sunshine!
