Finally had some sun this week so when up to Hexton Chalk Pits where had my first Dark Green Fritillarys in hertfordshire for a numbers of years with at least four in flight maybe more had to keep track as the heat was encouraging them to fly around a lot. Also had many Chalkhill Blues possible in the hundreds along with Marbled Whites, Gatekeepers, Meadow Browns,Ringlet and lots of Small\Essex skippers plus 1 Small Heath and a Shaded Broad-bar Moth and a Treble- bar Mot a good afternoon out though very warm after the cool weather we had.
