Dunwich & Theberton
At Dunwich Forest early afternoon, Ringlets were seen and Dick W and his wife had an immaculate White- letter Hairstreak perched on an overhanging strand of bramble. Too high up to photograph sadly. Commas were also seen. paul & Jane arrived and we eventually saw a White Admiral on a couple of occasions and another White- letter Hairstreak on an overhanging Elm leave branch, despite Paul's help i was unable to get a decent picture of it. Another White- letter hairstreak was seen perched high up on a Blackcurrant bush. An early Grayling was seen fly over and settle briefly on Dunwich Beach car park. At Theberton woods, no Fritillaries or Emperors seen but 8 Southern Hawkers were seen many perched but just out of reach of the camera lens! A Red Admiral was also seen.
