Everlasting Sweet Pea Brings In a Long-tailed Blue.

 In my back garden there is a well established Everlasting Sweet Pea  plant. It has now grown to a good size and flowers profusely. At this time of the year I always look out for the possibility of a visiting Long-tailed Blue as  I have just one record on  the 23rd August 2019 when a female was seen briefly close to the same plant. So it was with some excitement that I recorded one today flying vigorously around  and landing several times on the flowers.
