In between the showers I’ve been venturing out to try to find butterflies that are surviving the difficult summer we are having. One species that seems to be faring well are ringlets, a new species for me that I’ve seen only since moving to Norfolk. In the last couple of weeks there have been several sites where there have been large emergences and I’ve counted over 30 individuals in a short walk.
