NORWICH: Mousehold butterflies

27th May 2012

With scorching hot weather I didn't fancy lugging the 'scope around, so instead I opted for a walk around Mousehold looking for butterflies.  I saw Holly Blue & Small Copper on St James' Hill, and a couple more Small Coppers and a Green Hairstreak near Vinegar Pond.  Male & female Broad-bodied Chasers were flying around the small pond north of Vinegar Pond.  The female was ovipositing, but I don't fancy the chances of the pond staying wet for a couple of years.  The other insect highlight was a couple of Green Tiger Beetles.
