Moseley Green Survey

 

Unfortunately, there were no small pearl-bordered fritillary butterflies yet, things are late this year. There were a really good number of Marsh Violets along the Marsh violet ditch at Moseley Green which are a nectar source. The highlight of the day was four small copper butterflies in total although none of them obliged for a photo!
