Re: August 2011

awesome day out at arnside and warton.

hundreds upon hundreds of scotch argus out at the knott, even in drizzly weather, was decent.

a few nice brimstones and walls at warton.

all in all a 23 species day! :)

Good spot that, Nick. Did you find them by accident or is it a known site for them?


a mate of mine found the site the day before, so i went back with him the next day to try and see them for myself and wasn't disappointed, plus extra pleasing to find this was a new site for them :)
