First Expedition of the Summer

Officially it was the last day of Spring, but the temperatures and sunshine made it the first day of my Summer.

And this was a day of firsts………the first ever sighting for me of a Dingy Skipper Butterfly:dingy skipper UK butterfly


Also my first sighting of both a male and a female Broad-bodied chaser dragonflies whirling around together overhead, and then returning to the same (though as yet separate) perches:blue male broad-bodied chaser dragonfly

Broad-bodied chaser (female) at Myers Allotment


Also saw my first Brimstone of the year:Brimstone



And lay on the grass for the first time this year watching a Common Blue, probably my favourite butterfly:male common blue butterfly on fern

The second day of summer????……..bring it on. I’m ready.
