Butterfly Outing 24 May 2019

10 members went to Oaken Wood near Chiddingfold on a guided butterfly walk.  Our knowledgeable guide Phil Darley told us what butterflies we could expect to see, and also warned us to be vigilant about ticks which are known to carry Limes Disease in the area.

As is was warm and sunny the butterflies were very skittish, so photographing them was a real challenge. 

Here are some of our efforts.
