Brown Argus at Perransands Cornwall

These three Brown Argus were seen on Perransands last night.  The complete Perransands dune complex is one of three main areas in Cornwall to see this species. The other two areas are Upton and Gwithian Towans and the dunes around Rock and Padstow.

Brown Argus is double brooded and these individuals in mint condition are obviously of the second brood.  A visit to the same area last week showed none of this species so we guess they have just emerged.
