White Letter Day

Before going on holiday we visited Gulliver's World (sucker for punishment I know), I was however very surprised to find at least three White-Letter Hairstreaks around the park, along with Holly Blues, Buzzards, Blackcaps, and Chiff-Chaffs. Although I have never heard of White-Letter Hairstreaks at this site (Ive never heard of anything here!) it is surrounded by good mature woodland with many Elm trees and looks like the ideal habitat.

During the same week I took Dylan to see a local fox den and it didn't let us down with a Vixen and three young on show.........great and a first for him.

Elsewhere I had three Purple Hairstreaks near to the cafe in Sefton Park, 3 Buzzards over Camp Hill, Woolton.
