Was gazing out the office window whilst on the phone earlier and noticed intriguingly small dark duelling butterflies over the top of an elm tree. Sure enough, White-letter Hairstreaks. Up to 8 of them! Half way along the canal between the White Cross Pub and Penny Street bridge below the RSPB office in Lancaster. Mega!

Just been sent a couple of photos of a fresh individual this morning at the Crook O' Lune on Ragwort. First record in the Lune Valley to my knowledge, despite plenty of suitable Wych Elm.

What a summer!

Cheers.
