Joyce and I drove up across Dartmoor , as usual I had an ulterior motive which was to search for the High Brown Fritillary Butterfly at Aish Tor , the weather wasn't great, and although we saw one or two Fritillarys on the wing and one landed briefly on Bramble Flower, without seeing the underwing it was impossible to separate them from the Dark Green Fritillary which also breed here. However I did find a young Dartford Warbler which was a bonus and on the way home we stopped at St Raphaels Church at Hexworthy where a Spotted Flycatcher was using the bell tower as a perch.
