Silver-washed Fritillary

In the last couple of years, I'd heard reports of Silver-washed Fritillary butterflies in Whitwell Woods, about half an hour away from my home. They are believed to be from an unofficial introduction. Today, I decided to pop across to see if I could see any.

The weather on arrival wasn't great, being grey and overcast, but thankfully, the sun came out for a bout five minutes, and I was able to see two different butterflies, a female and a male.

Other butterflies seen today were: Speckled Wood (1), Common Blue (1) and Ringlet (c.15).
