Comma and it's larvae:Small Skipper:Large Skipper:Speckled Wood:White letter hairstreak:Large White:Gatekeeper:
Longhorn beetle:Weird flies that look as if they were wearing ice hocky masks:Common Darter:As well as the butterflies photographed we saw small white, white admiral, ringlet. Also brown hawker.
This gives us 10 species of butterfly which we were very happy with.
