It's summer so the butterflies should be out flying, but they seem hard to find this year. Up on the moors it was rather cool and cloudy the day we went, so only a few Small Heaths and a Small Pearl Bordered Fritillary were spotted. But Eric returned a week later and found this Mountain Ringlet enjoying the Thyme. We have also enjoyed Northern Brown Argus in a few sheltered glens near us, but never big numbers. At last the Ringlets are up flying though whenever there is a sunny spell.
