Abbot’s Wood with The Boy

My third trip to the beautiful Abbot’s Wood today. It’s only 40 mins from Brighton and it’s stunning. We were looking for Pearl Bordered Fritillaries but the weather wasn’t in our favour. 

We did see some speckled yellows (Pseudopanthera macularia) which are a pretty, fairly flighty day-flying moth. They don’t hang around much so I was chuffed to get a couple of frames. Nice views of a Small Heath (Coenonympha pamphilus) and Speckled Wood (Pararge aegeria) but not much else.
