I didn't time my walk very well today; fine rain accompanying me for much of the three hours that I was out. Of course it brightened up as soon as I got home.
I walked down to and through Spring Wood and then along Sconce Lane and Birch Close Lane before returning back along the edge of the moor. Of the few butterflies that I saw, Speckled Wood were the most numerous, but there was also one Comma and a Small White.
I thought this image of a Speckled Wood on a fallen leaf amid rain laden grass captured the season well.
