Another Brick in the Wall

Holkham looked a good bet for today’s birding tour. It wasn’t the juvenile Red Backed Shrike that lit up our walk; or even the two or three Yellow browed Warblers that were shouting at us from the end of the pines. Not even the four Cattle Egrets in with the Belted Galloways took centre stage. It was the Wall Butterflies.

I have honestly never seen Wall Butterflies in such profusion. We must have seen about 40 or so during the afternoon. Not in one’s and two’s but frequently in groups of three or four.

I think I managed to see more Walls in one afternoon than I have seen collectively over a couple of years. Perhaps these are a third brood taking advantage of the beautiful sunshine and the shelter from that persistent Northerly wind offered by the pines.
