Butterfly Watching in Penhale
Penhale Sands, Perranporth, Cornwall
Home Sweet Home, Grampound Road, Cornwall
Gorgeous weather today! Sunny and warm, 19 degree Celsius!
Went to Penahle Sands and we've seen 10++ Grizzled Skipper (1x full tara aberration and 4x half tara aberration), 10++ male and female Orange Tip ,8x Wall, 5x Speckled Wood, 4x Peacock, 2x Red Admiral, 6x Green-veined White, 4x Large White and 2x Small White plus a few Whitethroat.
And my greatest sighting for the day is... Dave Spencer and Paul Browning. I am sooo delighted to see them. We had a lovely time butterfly watching and taking photos.
Penhale Sands is the only place in now in Cornwall where you can see the rare Grizzled Skipper.
After Penhale, we went to Goss Moor (St Dennis Junction) hoping to see the Dingy Skipper. Unfortunately, I had not seen one. All is saw was 1x Small Copper, 2x Holly Blue, 5x Orange Tip, 1x Green-veind White, 3x Large White, 5x Small White, 1x Red Admiral and 1x Small Tortoiseshell.
Loads of butterflies along the road from home to all the places we went - 5x Peacock, 3x Red Admiral, 10++ Large White and 10++ Small White.
