The Emperor Strikes Back!
Two purple emperors came down yesterday to the baiting areas for the Purple Emperors & Woodland Butterflies photographic workshop; a great success and just overwhelming for me to see these magnificent and elusive insects again.
There were also silver-washed fritillaries galore, the woodland glades resembling a scene from the tropics!
The Badger Biology course I ran for Sussex Wildlife Trust yesterday ended in a badger watch with badgers for 2 hours 45 minutes; I think the longest yet and still maintaining a 100% success rate this year.10 glow-worms on the way out too!
