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
