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!

Ringlet (Aphantopus hyperantus) 

A pair of Ringlets - making new Ringlets!


  1. 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'.

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

  3. Great pictures especially of the pair mating !

  4. They are also on the meadow in Centre Vale park at Todmorden
