Unusual sighting on The Downs
A few days ago whilst on a "butterfly walk" on The Downs here in Bristol, I came across a very unusual sight. A pair of Dark Green Fritillary butterflies were mating and a Ringlet butterfly (smaller) was trying to get in on the act! The "Dark Greens" could not seem to get rid of the Ringlet but eventually did so. This was all the more unusual as, up until this occasion I had never seen a "Dark Green" on The Downs. The morning was overall very productive with about 10 different Butterfly species seen.
