Although it’s early days I have been a little disappointed with the number of Grizzled Skipper so far this Spring. Hopefully numbers will pick up soon on the local downland.
Strangely, the woodland ones that I was surveying on Saturday seem to be doing fine and even threw up some variation with a taras and 2 intermedia forms.
