Well we did Horsey gap to Winterton and back this afternoon. Nice Red backed shrike just before the start of the winterton sssi, loads of winchats and stonechats, and a lesser whitethroat. Totally dipped on greenish and barred, although I met folk who'd heard the greenish.

Good numbers of painted ladies (60+), and dark green fritillaries (10+) along with small torts (50+), red admirals, common blue, small heath, small copper, greyling, gatekeeper, and meadow brown. But again I met folk who'd met folk who'd seen a Camberwell beauty in Winterton Dunes. Anyone got any info on that?
