The Weather?

Hi all just a note, yesterday went to North Dorset with a couple of Aussi friends to check the Dukes & found 5 poss. 6, also some Dingy but no Grizzled.
Stopped at Cerne Abbas for them and at the base of the Giant we found 00's & 00's of fresh Marsh Fritts, absolutely stunning, never seen that many, so hope the weather is doing this to all the butterflies this year!

spent a morning at Cattistock earlier this week and got loads of Dingy skipper plus good numbers of Grizzled. Also got plenty of Brown Argus, common blue plus a couple of Marsh Frits. No Adonis blue though.
