Day 1 – Monday 20th – Weather poor no Brown Hairstreaks seen
Day 2 Tuesday 21st – Weather perfect in the afternoon – lots of visitor. We all struggled to find Brown Hairstreak – one or two “fly-bys” However Steve M managed to photograph a female by the old pond.
We also saw a second brood White Admiral – this is only the second time we have had second brood White Admiral at Grafton.
Day 3 Work Party and Brown Hairstreak Visits. Weather warm with a little sunshine.
At last Steve W spotted a female on the Blackthorn by the old pond and it sat there for over and hour everyone had loads of photographs – These from Dave W
Movie taken at Lower Hollowfields Farm
Day 4 Thursday Weather poor no Brown Hairstreak seen: However some of Grafton’s late flowers found despite this years drought. Orpine and Meadow Saffron
Day 6 Saturday: Sunshine and showers. Reports of 4 Brown Hairstreak around the pond area and 1 on Grafton Church car park. Forecast for tomorrow is for RAIN so I guess this ends a rather poor “Brown Hairstreak Week ”
