Ann made the most of a warm sunny day before the strong winds hit Dorset and has sent in these photos telling us:

Just a couple of photos from the eastern side of Badbury Rings taken on 19/05/2021 in glorious sunshine, which had clearly brought a few butterflies out.  Quite a number of pristine Common Blues about, Grizzled and Dingy Skippers, and Brimstones, which were great to see.
