Purple Emperor at Fermyn & Robert’s Field

His imperial majesty

26th June 2017.  My butterfly hunting quest this year was started by the fact that I had not seen the most celebrated species in this country, the purple emperor.  On Sunday 26th I made amends by visiting Fermyn Woods in Northants.

For the afternoon I went to Robert’s Field near Stamford, Lincs.  A superb reserve with lots of marbled whites and dark green fritillaries
