Marbled White and others

The Marbled White colony that established itself three years ago in a patch of grassland near the viewpoint at Castle Water appears to be doing well, at least 10 butterflies were present this morning. This species had only been recorded on the reserve three times before July 2007 and then only singletons. Other butterflies on the wing in the same area include Small Heath, Meadow Brown, Common Blue, Red Admiral and Green-veined White.
