Lavernock butterflies

There were plenty of butterflies in evidence at Lavernock Point nature reserve this afternoon, most of them making use of the abundant Devil's-bit Scabious flowers. Nine species were seen - pretty good for late September: Clouded Yellow, Large and Small White, Red Admiral, Painted Lady, Comma, Common Blue, Small Copper and Speckled Wood.

The second field in particular looks a picture at the moment - a blue haze of scabious flowers.
