White Admiral
   Visit to Bentley Wood, Wiltshire today, to look for Purple Emperor and White-letter Hairstreaks. Stood around in the car park looking for the Purple Emperors, sadly we didnt see any. As we left a chap said he had one flying around the tops of the trees. No sign when we went back. Had a good wander around the wood today, and we had Red Admiral, Large Skipper, Silver-washed Fritillary, Ringlet, Meadow Brown, Gatekeeper, 3 White Admirals and 4+ White-letter Hairstreaks. Sadly the Hairstreaks stayed at the tops of the Elms there.

   The last couple of hours were spent in the New Forest, mainly around the Shatterford/Beaulieu Road Station area. Had a few Silver-studded Blues, but the wind had got up by then, and it made it hard to follow anything flying!
