Martin Down 11th June

Toiday I visited Martin Down, one of Hampshires premiere butterfly sites. Leaving home the weather was great, sunny though cool. Driving through the New Forest I could see cloud in the direction I was going. On arriving at Martin the cloud had disappeared and the morning was virtually wall to wall sunshine.

I started in the southern section at 08:00 and a few butterflies were showing as they tried to warm up.
