Rare butterfly - Marsh Fritillary

We saw the Marsh Fritillary at Scrubb's Meadow, Chambers Farm Wood, Lincolnshire on Friday 31st May 2013.
They were often seen fighting above the meadow and along the hedge at the right hand side of the original meadow.
They were smaller than we expected, compared to other frittilaries.

We now only have the Black Hairstreak and the Northern Brown Argus to see and we will have photographed all of the UK butterfly species. However we have just heard that there is a 98% decline in the Black Hairstreak.
