While we were there Bug Mad Girl did another Big Butterfly Count. She counted 10 meadow browns, 1 six-spot burnet, 7 small heaths, 1 large skipper, 2 common blues, 6 gatekeepers, 2 ringlets, 2 small whites and 1 large white. Not bad considering it was quite windy and overcast! We entered the results on the Big #ButterflyCount website when we got home.
