NORWICH: White-letter Day

1st August 2012

Having found out that White-letter Hairstreaks had been seen nearby at Mousehold Heath, I waited until the sun came out and then headed down to Zaks carpark. I soon located a White-letter Hairstreak flying around a small elm, but it was being blown around quite a bit and seemed reluctant to land lower down.  I eventually managed to get a passable photo by holding my camera above my head!  I went and had a quick look at the banks of brambles behind the bandstand for White Admirals, but only found a Speckled Wood, with Ringlet and Gatekeeper a bit further round in an open glade.
