So, we decided to see if we could actually see one off these elusive creatures, equipped with Bins we set of to Westfield pill on what seemed to be a perfect day, sunny, slight breeze with a distinct danger of horseflies. A considerable bit of time was spent searching the upper parts of the oak trees, but to no avail, all we saw were a few ringlets. Then a diversion to the lakeshore to see what sort of fish had just disturbed the water led to a discovery that was a sheer delight.





As you can see, it has lost a hindwing which explains the proximity to the ground and it's tame behaviour, but all the same, I bet not many can say they had a PH crawling on their finger!! :D

Made the annual July pilgrimage to WP this afternoon c 5.30-6.30 and saw around 16 PH in the oak canopy from 4 different places on the cycle path.
They seem to be thriving in this habitat.
