Goldenacre Park butterflies

This weekend's visit to Goldenacre Park brought out a variety of butterflies in good numbers. Starting at the top end of the park we decided to head off track down a grassy path where we found large numbers of Gatekeepers & Ringlets.

We spotted 10 or so of these small butterflies which I think may be Small Heath, along with the profile shot I managed a quick blurred pic of it in about to take flight and revealing the upperwing.

In the garden area this Small Skipper on Lavender.

The Buddleias proved an irresistable draw for Small Tortoiseshell, Red Admiral and Commas (pictured here)

One of four Gatekeepers on a patch of Marjoram which also played host to a couple of Small Skippers.


  1. Butterflies everywhere at the moment, make the most of them :-)

  2. Golden Acre seems to be a great spot for the Butterfly

  3. Obviously a good spot for flutters..keep snapping.


Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment.
