"Sussex" Butterflies

Went over to Ditchling Common today for the Black Hairstreaks and personally found it pretty grim; I don't now how the butterflies got here but the whole thing just didn't feel right to me...release, re-found introduction maybe...I don't know... :-(

Nevertheless, I do hope people enjoy their presence.

After that I went to Park Corner Heath to check out what is definitely a release, Sussex Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary; found a nice male that pushed off before pics could be taken and a worn female. Plenty of Small Heath, Meadow Brown & one or two Common Blue as well.

So two butterfly species in Sussex...now where's those Knepp White Storks....

Wood Sandpiper and two Stints

Clawed one back, Wood Sandpiper was showing well if a bit distant, right at the back of Sidlesham Ferry Pool up to 1115 at least, nice.

Little Stint on the Ferry Pool 22.5.18, Temminck's Stint ditto 23.5.18

Ropey photos of the three below..I tried...
