Small Coppers were about today and might even have a rare subspecies as per Colin Stanley's over in Merlin Woods.
103 bumble bees covering 3 species and one of those totalled 76. 6 species of butterfly; 3 Large White; 6 Green Vein White; 3 Small Tortoiseshell; 2 Small Copper; 4 Common Blue; 5 Meadow Brown; 1 Speckled Wood. Dragonflies, 1 Common Darter. Numbers way down on previous weeks, temperature was a little lower and very windy. Miss a few shots today due to the wind.
