Alners Gorse & Lynlinch Common

Another May weekend visit, this time to Alners Gorse and Lynlinch Common.  The first was still showing some butterflies, but was really at an in between time for the site, I expect to see more later on in the year.

What I did see was several Large Skippers about and a Broad-bodied Chaser.  Here’s the 3 best shots I got from them at Alners.

After Alners I had a walk around Lynlinch common.  There were still some Forester Moths out that I took last visit, and some blues sitting on vegetation in the wind.  The best of these that I took is below.
