'Moist' and 'misty' come to mind as appropriate adjectives to describe today. Lulworth was shrouded in low cloud for the best part of the bank holiday, putting a temporary halt to our butterfly surveying schedule. Then again butterflies are warm weather wimps aren't they? The dampness didn't stop other insects from taking to the wing on the slopes above the village.
The chalk-loving crambid moth Hypochalcia ahenella
Cauchas fibulella is easy to find around Germander Speedwell at the moment
Garden Tiger looking for somewhere to pupate
Leptogaster cylindrica, a really funky new robberfly for me
Stinking Iris is now flowering in a few cliff top spots around Lulworth
That Leptogaster! Superb
Aye it's a dainty stunner!
