This was another butterfly that we had already seen but did not possess a good photograph of...so we went on to Droitwich and stayed at the Crown (Marston's) which was good value, clean, comfortable and had lovely food - mmm I digress, but after The Heath Inn at Leighton Buzzard ( see my review on Laterooms.com) I am sensitised!
We went off to the Wyre Forest and after a wrong turn or so we found the entrance and car park at Dry Mill Lane
There are a number of walks signposted from the car park; basically it is the red route but there is now a butterfly trail - we followed this and we were bombarded with flying Pearl Bordered Fritillaries.
It is difficult to distinguish between this and the Small Pearl Bordered Fritillary; looking at and photographing the underwings is the only sure way to check: the chevrons have a red surround and the black eye spot is small in the pearl bordered fritillary.
Easier than the Wood White and the Real's Wood White though - where you need a microscope to compare the genitalia - as if - when you are out walking - oh, and in Ireland
