Whitecross Green BBOWT Reserve,22nd June

I decided to stop off at the reserve this afternoon on my way home to look for the Black Hairstreaks again. It was very windy but there were still at least 8+ flying around the tops of the Blackthorns. A few were coming down quite low but soon flew off again. After a bit of searching I finally came across an obliging female sat low down on Blackthorn near the pond. I managed a few shots before she flew off.

  1. Wonderful shots Wayne. I was hoping to get there myself this week but probably will not make it. Well done.

  2. Cheers Bob! The reserve is only down the road from me, so fortunately for me I can get there quite often.
