Martin travelled from Bristol on 27/02/19 to look for the Large Tortoiseshell reported as seen at Tout Quarry, Portland.

He says he was there for four hours and was about to leave having only seen this Peacock, when he saw some people looking into a gully. Lo and behold, there was his target species. Now that’s dedication!
