On my walk yesterday,14/09/2020 I went through the orchid field in Corfe Mullen, not expecting to see any wildlife as the field has been mown. However, in the ‘second field’ where nothing has been mown to date, I found at least 5 Common Blues – very active in the bright sunshine, together with a couple of Small Coppers and occasional whites – a real joy to see.
