Other Fermyn Butts

Sunday (17th) saw Mike Weedon and I visit Maxey Gravel Pits and Frampton Marsh RSPB. Due to excessive sun and a broken tripod we soon decided a visit to Fermyn Woods near Oundle was in order. However afternoons are no good for Purple Emperors if it is hot (why we didn't go there in the first place I don't know). However Silver-washed Fritillaries showed well and was good to get some decent images.

The White-letter Hairstreak pictured below was seen on Wednesday (20th) when Pops and I returned to Fermyn. All though a little tatty, was good to see as didn't see any at a traditional site near Peterborough later in the day.
