During a walk earlier this week I trod various footpaths bordered by wooden fences that traditionally enclose pastures and paddocks throughout my home County.
The top rail of any wooden fence is always a good spot to find a Common Darter resting and soaking up the late summer sunshine.
A view across the gently rolling rural landscape of The Weald with its unkempt meadows surrounded by woodland and the manicured lawns of a local Polo Club in the distance.
Unfortunately very few butterflies were logged during this walk. The most numerous were Speckled Wood (above) that frequent the damper woodland areas, a few Green-veined Whites, Red Admiral, Small Copper (for images see my previous post) plus a totally unexpected female Brown Hairstreak.
