A variety of butterflies have arrived at the patch of clover at the north end of the rifle range, enjoying the warmth of the sunlight reflected down from the cliffs.

Common Blues, a Small Skipper and a Small Heath were seen flying around, as well as.....

.... a Marbled White, the first I've noticed in Kingsdown.
This was a very small butterfly, and I assumed it was a Small Blue - but on closer inspection the edge markings seem to indicate it's a Common Blue. This is clearly a veteran, being so tatty.
