Arnside Knott

Had a day at Arnside Knott yesterday and got my first ever High Brown Fritillary. Also first of the year Dark Green Fritillary, Small Skipper and Six Spot Burnet moth. However, there were very few Butterflies on the wing despite the weather being great. The only one that was flying in any numbers was Ringlets I have never seen as many at one site. In addition, it was nice to have a close (around 25 yards) encounter with a Roe Deer, which stood looking at me while I took its picture then it just walked off.
