Lancing Ring Reports 2014

20 August 2013
I made a rare visit to Lancing Ring Nature Reserve where there were more white butterflies, Speckled Woods in the shade and over a hundred butterflies in the meadows. By far the most numerous of the meadow butterflies were over fifty Common Blues seem amongst the tall vegetation, almost all of them males, frequent Meadow Browns and frequent Gatekeepers.

 Hoverfly Helophilus
 Wall Brown

Wall Browns (25+) were all over the well used paths with a few in the meadows where three male Chalkhill Blues fluttered in the sunshine in the south-west corner.  There was at least one Red Admiral noted by the dewpond puddle and Silver Y Moths around. Overall, I must have seen in excess of a fifty Large Whites which were the butterflies seen mostly around the Buddleia. I originally accepted the presence of the Brown Argus but the few photographs in focus turned out to be female Common Blues
Thousands of grasshoppers hopped amongst the tall meadow vegetation.
