OK, I'm sorry, this will be the last time I write about devil's bit scabious, but just look........
As predicted, the thousands of flower-heads are opening to give drifts of lilac-blue across Lydden Downs.
There were few butterflies to enjoy the blooms, just an occasional white, meadow brown, painted lady, small copper, small heath and adonis blue.
I assume that this faded butterfly, shacked up for the evening with a ladybird in her nest, is an adonis brown.
Above the down, two of the three buzzards were seen, constantly harrassed by crows.
