Quite near the Lighthouse I found this rather small Common Spotted Orchid, small but still a welcome sight.
Down at the old Tramway the grass was full of these beauties, varying in colour from almost white to a deeper pink or purple.
There were quite a few Blue Butterflies around, including this Adonis Blue. It is not as well marked as some are but at least it did stop for a quick photo, unlike other that seemed to be in perpetual motion.
I also saw the first Meadow Brown that I've seen this year. I seemed to want to play hide and seek in amongst the grasses and never rested with its wings open.
There were still some Painted Ladies around, but far fewer than there had been a week ago. Several of those that I saw were getting very worn. It will be a while before the next generation from the huge immigration, is on the wing. These butterflies will be pristine but unfortunately the Painted Lady is unable to survive through our winters, so the large numbers this year doesn't necessarily mean a good number next year.
