Butterflies in the South

A look at a few sites in the south was rewarding with a good variety of species. Highlights of the less common species included -
White Letter Hairstreak at Holyland Wood, Pembroke, early morning. On to Bosherston, an excellent spot in the dunes held Brown Argus (photos), Small Blue, Common Blue and Grayling. A single Silver washed Fritillary was on bramble near the grassy bridge. In Mere Pool valley there were a few Small Coppers and numerous Gatekeepers. Dragonflies there included 2 Emperors, some Common Darters and lots of immature Azures and Common Blue Damselflies. Next, St Govans, where just one pair of Silver Studded Blues were found. The path through the range was closed a better look is needed another day.
