White, Blacks and Purples

On the Wood White and Black Hairstreak day a couple of weeks ago we managed one or two of each. However it was the appearance of a Purple Emperor at a site in Northamptonshire – a first for the wood we visited – that was a total surprise. Next years tour is open for bookings – https://www.wildlifetoursandeducation.co.uk/tours/special-day-tours/

Scarcities on the wing

A trip into Northamptonshire last month spawned a day trip for next year (see this link) in search of Wood Whites and Black Hairstreaks. Wood Whites are like floating pieces of tissue paper whereas Black Hairstreaks, one of the UK’s scarcer species,  are tree top dwellers but it’s possible to find a few at ground level … as per the photos. Let me know if you’d like to make a booking.
