Glanvilles and more at Wheelers Bay.

With a coldest spring for fifty years it was not surprising that the appearance of the Glanvilles at Wheelers Bay,Bonchurch was much later than usual.It was not until the 25th May that the first sighting was made and happily numbers have increased steadily since.
Yesterday on a very sunny afternoon I wandered along the Bay and marvelled at the fantastic display of colourful flowers that covered the ground on and at the base of the cliffs.In addition to the Glanvilles there were good numbers of Common Blues together with Dingy Skippers,Brown Argus,and various White butterflies.
