Ogden Water

Our WATCH group meeting today was on bumblebees, but when we headed out to look for them the butterflies took over! We hunted on the little bit of moorland to the top side of the house on the other side of the reservoir. Not a bad selection for 40 minutes of hunting. If anyone can identify the top photo then I would appreciate it.

Our list
1526 Small Skipper
1574 Common Blue (2nd photo) lots of them, including some mating
1614 Speckeld Wood
1626 Meadow Brown
1629 Ringlet
1638 Fox moth caterpillar - we think (3rd photo)
1738 Common Carpet
