White-letter Hairstreaks Back at Towngate.

A visit to the elm tree at Towngate in Newport on the 24th June discovered several male White-letter Hairstreaks high in the branches.Today a prolonged watch resulted in a probable male nectaring on cow parsley and at least one female laying eggs on the lower branches of this disease-resistant elm.
