Among the butterflies, Dingy and Grizzled Skippers were almost over and Small Blue numbers were also starting to decline, though quite a few eggs and empty eggshells were found on Kidney Vetch flowers. Two Marsh Fritillaries were seen on the Butterfly Ride, and three Small Pearl-bordered Frits in the north-western part of the forest. Ringlets were already out in good number and I was surprised to see two Marbled Whites (early for Carms?).
I saw few macro-moths but Blackneck and Four-dotted Footman were nice.
