Lots of Green Hairstreaks after work this afternoon but I again failed to locate any Silver-studded Blues, despite covering Lympstone Common, East Budleigh Common and Bicton Common. The weather was perfect too. I did however manage to find a small colony of Clouded Buffs, close to yesterday's sighting, 5 Dartford Warblers, a few Redpolls and a Nightjar.
A rare glimpse of a Green Hairstreak's upper wing. It's not green!
Large Skipper - this, half a dozen Small Heaths and 3 or 4 Speckled Woods were the only butterfly species noted in warm sunny weather.
Bee species or perhaps a good bee-mimic - not sure - East Budleigh Common.
