Cunnery Wood, 17th August

Had a butterfly hunt in the meadow at Cunnery Wood today (with the help of a local out of school club - nets held high running through the grass trying to catch them!

Not a bad haul for 30 mins of hunting,
Small skipper - over 50
Gatekeeper - 5
Meadow Brown - over 25
Ringlet - 20
Small White - 3
and the one below which I think is a Dark Green Fritillary (but let me know if I am wrong) - 2

Can't help with the butterfly Chris - I don't know it, but it looks a good find.
