Ringlets!

Walking between Mytholmroyd and Hebden Bridge this weekend, we were delighted to come upon a host of Ringlets - at least 20 - which suddenly burst forth along a grassy bank just as the sun appeared. A wonderful spectacle!

Yes, we've been seeing lots of them on our hillside, and down near the Dobroyd Lane footbridge (in Todmorden). They seem to have a distinctive bouyant flight/'jizz'.

I saw quite a few as well on Saturday close to the Hollins, Luddenden.
