Marsh Frits (9th June)

Had a great day down on the Lizard in the company of several Marsh Fritillaries (a lifer!).  There is honestly no better way to spend a day than watching them at close range crawling all over the vegetation, egg laying and chasing rivals around the boggy fields.  Small Pearl-bordered Fritillaries added to the highlights as did discovering a Fox Moth resting in the grass.  2 Cuckoos were also about and a Fox made a brief appearance.
