Back on Bonchurch Down.

A return visit to Bonchurch Down today in the anticipation of seeing the first Adonis Blue on the year.I was not disappointed as after finding several Common Blue butterflies which are similar to the Adonis from a distance, I saw a male Adonis. If last years numbers are repeated it will not be long before the Down is awash with the spectacular blue of this butterfly.

The blue of the Common Blue although less intense is no less attractive.
