Edinburgh Sightings - August 2017

Bawsinch reserve lunchtime today. Circa 6 GV white plus several flyby whites. 1 small copper and 1 comma. Disappointingly small numbers given the good conditions. No meadow browns which have been present in previous years.

Arthurs seat and blackford glen on the 8th august. Lots of whites mainly GVW and a fair few small coppers at arthurs seat , and one fly by blue. A lot of colour variation in the small coppers. 1 comma at the hermitage. After taking photos left my glasses by a riverbank at hermitage when i returned to get them on the 9th discovered elephant hawk moth caterpiller.
