Warham Camp has now been a fairly long-standing site for an introduced population of Chalkhill Blues and in the right weather they are plentiful along the dicthes of the old Iron Age fort. I saw hundreds this morning but they were difficult to photograph as they were whizzing about everywhere. Also there I had a single Painted Lady, Meadow Browns, Gatekeeper, Common Blue, Holly Blue, Small White, Large White, Green-veined White, Small Copper, Wall Brown and Comma.
On to Holham Meals where despite 2 hours of searching I failed with Creeping Ladies Tresses but nonetheless managed 2 Painted Ladies, Small Tortoiseshell, Red Admiral, Wall Brown, Peacock and Speckled Wood bringing my butterfly day total to 15 species. There were also plenty of Common Darters, a few Ruddy Darters and my first Migrant Hawker of the year.
My final port of call was a small pond on the Thorpe Marriot estate at Taverham. Here I'd had a tip-off that there were Small Red-eyed Damselfies present and sure enough I had about 10 there although they were stubbonly staying in the middle of the pond so difficult to photograph. Also there were Southern Hawker, Brown Hawker, Blue-tailed Damselfly and Azure Damselfly.
