Chalky and Turtle

As the morning warmed up we gave Yellowland a good search including the old railway workings managing over a 100 Marbled White's and even more numerous Ringlets and Meadow Browns but the highlights of the day were 2 Chalk Carpet moths a Nationally Scarce B species and a calling Turtle Dove. Other species of interest included Lattice Heath, Small Blue, Small Skipper, Six-spot Burnet, Black-tailed Skimmer along with a few Bee Orchids while birds included Great-spotted Woodpecker, Nuthatch and Jay.
