One reason for travelling is to find restricted distribution species. Argyll is rich in insect life including species we cannot find in Eastern Scotland. For that reason, we visit once a year in late Spring when there's plenty activity about and the weather is often agreeable with few of the unwelcome insects.
Nine dragonflies are quite possible; if fact we scored eight on this year's visit, missing out on Golden-ringed which may not have emerged given that it seems to be a late Spring. However there are also interesting Butterflies and Moths. As well as the restricted range Chequered Skipper which we saw there is the Marsh Fritillary. We don't see it every year but this year we found, perhaps, four. The underside is distinctive as it is with many butterflies which look much the same on the upper wing. A cloud had come over and thankfully this one settled for a photo call.
