Blast from the past - Tentsmuir Butterfly Walk, August 2013

Went up with the family Sunday afternoon on a beautiful sunny day, and saw a nice selection of butterflies, two of which I'd never seen before - Small Heath and Grayling. I probably have seen them, but didn't know what they were before. Also there were a good number of Dark-green Fritillaries and some Whites, some Small Coppers and a couple of Peacocks. There were also a couple of Six-spot Burnets but Cinnabar Moths were only available in caterpillar form still.
