Nottinghamshire Flutterings 18/6/17 Essex Skipper

Nottinghamshire Flutterings 18/6/17 Essex Skipper

 

First Essex Skipper (2) of the year seen on his Wollaton Park transect by Richard Smyth on 15th June, just one day off the earliest I have on record (14/6/2004)

Looks as though Grizzled and Dingy Skippers have had their 2017. The demise of Orange-tip soon to follow.

Thanks to all those who have sent in records – 330  over the last week including…
