On the heathland we came across a fresh looking Purple Hairstreak down on the ragworth most likly due to the weather. Then along on the heath had quite a few Marbled white feeding in the overcast conditions a lone Holly Blue and a Small Tortoiseshell. Then in the afternoon we went to the Purple Emperor Tree where despite the condition had at least 2 sightings of 1 flying over though sadly not the greatest view but a good field trip overall.
