On the day of the national BC online Members’ Morning & AGM it is great to have these two photos from Lynda to share with everyone. The Long-tailed Blue is a fairly rare and irregular visitor to southern England usually in late summer up to the end of September. Lynda sent in the photos telling us:
I thought you might like these photos of the Long-tailed Blue I came across on the heath behind the Kitchen cafe on Hartland Moor today, 03/11/2023. Rather surprising given it’s November and after the storms of late. It is looking a trifle worn, but good to find one nevertheless.
I almost didn’t cross the stream to the boggy heathland after having coffee at the cafe, but so glad I did.
