Ardeer Quarry LNR

A window of sunshine for a few hours today saw a few butterflies on the wing at Ardeer Quarry: 3 Common Blues, 2 Red Admirals, 1 Small Copper, 1 Meadow Brown, and 1 Small White. Also, there was a White Ermine moth caterpillar crawling across the tarmac.

Nice photos Iain. Haven't seen an Elephant HM for a few years now in Ayrshire. I guess there is a lot of willowherb in the Ardeer area.
