Ringlet Butterflies

Lew reported he had seen a number of Black-tailed Skimmer and Emperor Dragonflies on the long pond this morning and this afternoon I had a walk up. Unfortunately the Emperor’s were patrolling their territory and not settling, but a couple of the Skimmers did, see photos attached.

It was ideal weather for the Pearl bordered fritillary to be about but again none were found. In the same area there were four Ringlets, they were easily spooked, not come across these on reserve before but the photos do confirm them to be Ringlets.
