Just returned from spending most of the morning on the annexed pavements to Number 9 (Hybrid Hill). Quite a few Dark Red Helliborines to report, and a couple of Broad Leaved, but certainly no special Schmalhausenii about. Didn't get long but at least I am keep adding to the jigsaw and getting them mapped out!
On my way up there disturbed a Roebuck and a doe which quickly ran off through the bracken and out of sight. There were lots of Dark Green Fritillaries, Meadow Browns and Ringlets, but also had that small little black day flying moth which they call the Chimney Sweeper.
