In search of Purple Hairstreaks

This evening (14th July) I visited the Lea Ground Coppice part of Whiteley Pastures to look for Purple Hairstreaks. Although it was quite breezy I did manage to have 10 sightings, all at the tops of the Oak trees. On the bramble bushes White Admirals were feeding actively as were Silver-washed Fritillaries.
