Always something to do, preparing for a top to bottom repaint.
Last summer I found some silver spotted skippers in shotover country park, to be exact brasenose meadow. The nearest colonies of these butterflies is aston rowant country park in the chiltern hills over 20 km from oxford, these butterflies don’t wander much or far from their colonies so to gat some vagrants near oxford was quite a surprise. So above is the piece published by butterfly conservation, upper thames branch...... what a surprise to find them, I wonder if i will see some more this year or find some thing different.
