Skippers and more

We had a wander round a few North Pembs sites to look for butterflies today. These stunning Marsh Fritillaries were on a very wet Puncheston common. SN003300, wellies essential.
Also a Large Red Damselfly..
The highlight though was 2 Grizzled Skippers at Broadmoor Wood on a track with Wild Strawberry and Tormentil growing in a localised area at SM9921932060 A rare butterfly in Wales.
There was also a very tatty Dingy Skipper. 
The site was accessed from a large laybe on the minor road from Lanychaer to Puncheston, walking down the bridleway for about a mile across moorland and regenerating clear fell.
On Pen Anglas near Fishguard there weren't many butterflies about, this Large Skipper being the best.
