Purple Hairstreaks


Its there honest........

I watched about 5/6 Purple Hairstreaks today at Only House wood Northowram,from about 2.00 -2.30,did'nt manage to get any decent photos (see above) as they were up and around the canopy,two did come down to eye level but I was unable to get any decent shots.5 speckled woods,1 small copper and a Gatekeeper.Also seen were a Common carpet and Ypsolopha sequella flushed from a nettle patch.
