The sun must have got out at sometime as it was warm and it was shining through the little haze it hadn't managed to burn off when I returned from work. As it was still warmish and there were several reports elsewhere I went looking for Green Hairstreaks on the fell. Surprisingly it did not take me long to find one and eventually got four. Often I have to work very hard to see them. Unfortunately they were very active and I could not get them to stay still long enough for anything decent in the way of a photo. With it being late and the air temperature cooling they disappeared as quickly as I found them. It must have been their last flurry of the day, so I disappeared too and will try again tomorrow. Tomorrow is day 1 of 17 days off work.
