Following her very successful trip to Hod Hill on 19/04/2021 Shona sent in these photos telling us:

I’ve just got back from Hod Hill, my best butterfly expedition of the year so far – 10 species seen, at least 42 butterflies! I was hoping to see the Grizzled Skipper, which had been reported as being seen there, and saw this one soon after arriving. More of a surprise were the 8 Dingy Skippers which I saw – this photo is one of them!
