Lepidoptera Lifer!

silver1Whilst on my way to work yesterday I noticed a species of fritillary butterfly feeding on a Buddlea bush. Unfortunately I couldn’t get a decent photo on my phone so I returned this morning and was able to get some better shots with my camera.
I was delighted to see that they were a pair of Silver Washed Fritillary – a new one for my list and a lovely looking butterfly too. Several Red Admirals, Large Whites, Peacock and Speckled Woods were also taking an interest in the same bushes.
