West Lothian Sightings - June 2017

Postby Dennis » Thu 22 Jun 2017 16:45

4 Small-pearl bordered Fritilaries this afternoon at Easter Inch Moss near Bathgate. I observed a pair mating right in front of me for about half an hour. I took this shot with my phone, better images to follow.
Also plenty Small Heaths, Ringlets and Meadow Brown.

Glad you found them, Dennis.

Finally made it to Easter Inch Moss for a quick visit in marginal conditions at lunchtime today. 5 SPB fritillaries, mostly flybys, about 2 dozen ringlets, 5 meadow browns, a small heath and a GVW.
