Butterflies at Noar Hill

On Tuesday we went to Noar Hill, a stunning nature reserve of medieval chalk pits supporting some rare flora and fauna. It was carpeted in flowers and alive with butterflies. Gorgeous!

  1. I love how the colours of the flowers bring out the glorious colours of the butterflies! So good to see all the butterflies about, after the awful “summer” we have had!

    • Thank you, I’d read that it’d been a poor summer for butterflies so I was pleased to see so many. We met a gentleman who was looking for brown hairstreaks, found in very few places now and known to be at Noar Hill. He hadn’t found any, but did point out the brimstones to us. I hope we have a decent September!
