Butterflies at Tottenhoe

Back to my more local area for now and a couple of nice visits to Tottenhoe Quarry over the last 2 weeks got me a bit of sun and a single sighting of a Duke of Burgundy along with quite a few other friends with the highland being the Small Blue out in good number including a mating pair, Green Hairstreak, Small Heath, Common Blue, Dingy Skippers and a nice selection of White Butteries some posing quite well. Also heard Turtle Dove which is so rare nowdays but sadly could't see it but heard it in the Quarryfor the 2nd year running which is promising.
