Lots of Butterflies at Clock Face Quarry this afternoon. Peacock, Painted Lady, Large White, Meadow Brown, Ringlet, Speckled Wood, Small Tortoiseshell. Sadly no Clouded Yellow.


  1. Has a Clouded Yellow been seen up there? I missed that. You don't mention the blue in your photo. Nice to get two Skippers in one shot.

    1. No I was just hoping for a CY. I just listed the ones not in the photographs.
