In the shelter of North Glen App

I checked a few sites on the southern coast today but it was clear that the wind was one factor in the low numbers around. Still, Pinbain Burn had a single Grayling (my earliest record), 10 Large Skipper, 2 Northern Brown Argus, 1 Wall, 6 Common Blue, and 3 Small Heath.

Moving inland to the shelter of North Glen App proved a wise move with some good counts: Dark Green Fritillary (17) Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary (13) Large Heath (17) Small Heath (70+) Large Skipper (2) Wall (1) Golden-ringed Dragonfly (min 9) Also Meadow Brown, Common Blue, Green-veined White, Peacock (very worn individual from the 2007 brood), Chimney Sweeper, Large Red Damselfly, Crossbill (4+), Jay and Tawny Owl.
