Recent sightings in Sussex
Sunday 23 October
I first visited Mill Hill and with only Red Admiral (5) sightings I decided that I would head down to Southwick Basin--a very good move as it turned out.
As I walked down the steps, it was clear the Clouded Yellows (3) were still active, including 1 female. At the end of the first bank, male (2) and female (1) Common Blues and a couple of Small Whites were patrolling the hedge line. As I walked down to the gates there were about 5 or 6 Clouded Yellow flying along the path but the highlight of the day has to go to a Clouded Yellow pairing, with the female a Helice! (David Cook)
