Aug 26th Mousehold Heath

Grey Squirrel
Another warm sunny day, another butterfly survey at Mousehold Heath. This time it was on the other half of the site and it was more successful as we managed to tally 34 of these wonderful insects. There were 14 large whites, 1 comma, 4 holly blues, 1 common blue, 7 speckled woods, 1 meadow brown, 3 purple hairstreaks, 1 small copper and 1 gatekeeper. I also heard a bullfinch this afternoon, the first time I've heard one at Mousehold before.
