Dingy skipper (Erynnis tages) returns

20080509 Brede High Woods 6b Dingy skipper 2

After a gap of 11 years I have seen the dingy skipper butterfly on the wing in Brede High Woods here in East Sussex.

This is now a national Priority Species because it has been in rapid decline, so this is a good sign.
