Purple patch

Patches of oak trees are good places to spot Purple Hairstreak butterflies at the moment – saw one yesterday with wings closed but perfect views of its delicate patterning. Binoculars were helpful!

Also went out looking for White-letter Hairstreaks by the scraggy elms on the Ettington by-pass. No luck though.
