Upton Towens

A couple of weeks ago I spent a good part of a day down at Upton Towens near Hayle , a Cornwall Wildlife Trust nature reserve comprising of super sand dune systems and coastal grasses,,which attract a varied array of fauna and flora
Dark Green Fritillary
. My main target were the Silver Studded Blues which were much in evidance but pretty flighty , earlier or later in the day may have been better, also good numbers of Dark Green Fritillary were on the wing which was nice to see.A great place to spend a day.
