Garnwen butterflies

Hoverflies were poor today only 14 common species, won't be to long before the Hogweed bumps up the numbers though. The highlight though was a largish emergence of Ringlet butterfly. I counted 35 individuals within a quarter of a mile circuit. Meadow Browns are also emerging but at lower numbers and I counted 11 on the same circuit. Both species spent most of the time fighting each-other for dominance of the woodland rides. Even though there were less Meadow Brown they seemed to be winning.

I have a few plants and such to put on Ispot, but its down for a rebuilt for a few days. So I'll post separately if anything interesting comes from the photos.
