I tend to avoid the local country park on bank holidays, as it can be difficult to find the peace and solitude I prefer during my walks but, luckily, on the May Day holiday, most people were sticking to the walks around the lakes, the children’s playground and those places where they could buy food and drinks. So, a circuitous walk around the various paddocks and through a sheltered woodland clearing turned up my first Small tortoiseshell butterfly of the year and this beauty, my first Dingy skipper. Bank holiday bonuses both!
