College Wood, Northill - butterflies

Splendid lunch-hour at College Wood (nr Northill) today. A Peregrine circling overhead, and two Tawny Owls flushed (one of which crashed outof its tree like a Woodpigeon). But more interest in the butterflies -at least six White-letter Hairstreak, two White Admiral and two Silver-washed Fritillaries. One of the latter coming down for moisture/salts on the gravel at the entrance to the wood, giving greatviews (Mark Eaton)
