Butterflies at Bedford Purlieus

This lunchtime (1.7.04) I went (with Brian Stone and Katie Fuller) for a lunchtime dash up to Bedford Purlieus, an excellent ancient woodland near to Peterborough, which holds some great butterflies. Out targets were White Letter Hairstreaks (failed) and White Admiral (found one, too high to photograph). Here are a couple of easier-to-photograph species from the walk, plus a Small Tortoiseshell from 29.6.04 at Glapthorn Cow Pastures.

Speckled Wood (rather worn individual)

Meadow Brown
