A change from moths

Walking down the middle track at Wanstone on a suprisingly birdless morning last Friday when I all but stepped on this confiding young Wheatear

It considered flying off

 but decided to stay for another photo

Today we been for a walk in the Forewood. Met a chap who regularly does butterfly census' in Tudeley Woods, and who reported seeing a White Admiral today. We didn't find that, but on a patch of Knapweed close beside the river bridge at the Pepperingeye end of the wood we found this lovely Silver-washed Fritillary, what a beauty. Don't know how common or rare they are in the wood, maybe someone will tell me
