Wet weather and soaking grass. Not great conditions for butterflies, but as I walked through the long grass at Garnock East I disturbed a Common Blue, a Peacock, a Green-veined White, a Meadow Brown, and a Small Heath – a good variety for such a wet day. As conditions got better, a Peacock and 2 Green-veined Whites were on the wing. An Elephant Hawk-Moth caterpillar was crawling across the road at Garnock East.
