A rare Wall on the Firehills

A personal new butterfly species record and a rare one for the CP it seems, as I can only find 2 previous records, one in 1993 in the field next to Barn Pond and the other in 2017 also on the Firehills. Possibly just under recorded as there are plenty of records for the rest of East Sussex.

Also seen today a juvenile Stonechat, note the mottled breast, making it’s unmistakeable alarm call with an adult male nearby doing the same. This demonstrates successful breeding again this year on the Firehills.
