Butterflies Mostly - Studlands and Ballard Down

Today we went Studlands Nature Reserve, which was disappointing in terms of species seen - for me, a Large Red Damsel fly and a mysterious hairy fly which has been tentatively identified as a Coastal Silver Stiletto Fly - acrosathe annulata. Next we moved on to Swanage, but on the way three of us went onto Ballard Down where we saw (but failed to photograph!) Lolworth Skippers and photographed Common Blues and the rare Adonis Blue.  Thanks to Richard Revels who guided us and identified species for us.
