22nd July 2012

With another good forecast with plenty of sun decided to head out doin butterflies with the target being White-letter Hairstreak,Purple Emperor & Silver-washed Fritillary! so set of with good mate Andy Jones for Bedford Perlieus,Northants where we were soon watching Silver-washed Frits in good numbers but getting a pic was a lot harder with them always on the move!! also seen were plenty of Ringlets,Marbled Whites a cpl of Purple Hairstreaks! after getting the pics of the Frits we headed off to Fermyn Woods for the Purple Emperors & within mins of pulling up we'd had at least 5 giving fantastic views,then the call went up someone had got a photographable White-letter Hairstreak further up the track when disaster struck the 1D Mk111 packed up with a error 30 (Terminal shutter fault) What a bugger!! At least i'd managed to photograph the Emperors which were a lifer!! Photos from the day below...........
