I visited Noar Hill this week to see the rare Duke of Burgundy butterfly. The weather was perfect and I managed to see about ten individuals. Most of them looked fairly worn but this one was perfect in back light. The site is a gem of a place and given a bit more time, no doubt would have thrown up a few more species. As it was, I also saw Green Hairstreak, Dingy Skipper, Brimstone, Small Heath, Small Blue, but missed the Grizzled Skipper. Later in the season, the site is also good for Brown Hairstreak.
