Durham Argus

Reference: BU131
Location: Bishop Middleham Quarry, Co Durham
Gallery: Butterflies,

I had organised a summer trip up north for 3 of us to see 5 new orchids and to revisit a couple of scare butterflies. On the first afternoon we visited Bishop Middleham Quarry in County Durham. The weather was dull and cool and finding any butterflies at all was very difficult, in fact we only found 1 and thankfully it was a Durham Argus. I was delighted to find it perched on top of a Dark Red Helleborine, another target species!
