Brockadale Nature Reserve Marbled White sightings

What better way to get back to blogging than with a trip to Brockadale Nature Reserve for some satisfying views of Marbled Whites.

Sharing a thistle with a 6 Spot Burnet (?) 

and another...

  5. I visited Brockadale this afternoon for the first time in over ten years. I saw a couple of marbled white butterflies and dozens of burnet moths on blue scabious.

  6. Hello Roy, thanks very much, its a great reserve to visit.

    Hello Lee,wonderful, Ive been 3 or 4 times now and have enjoyed each visit. I saw a lot of burnets too, didn't quite get round to putting those pics up onto the blog though.

    Best wishes, Linda
