Insect Hunt

Having our own ladybirds at the Centre has made Lorna and I more aware of their existence and role in this world. On my annual hunt for the first Islay Purple Hairstreak we came across these two species and a pair of mating Ringlets but, despite (gently) bashing many Oak trees, not a PH in sight! The search continues . . .

Any Purple Hairstreaks up there?!
