Ragwort in seed

I ambled over the parched upper part, top meadows and middle slopes of Mill Hill, without any special searching and I saw over a hundred Meadow Browns, many of them amorous, at least 39 (36+3) Adonis Blues including courting couples (probably the largest number ever seen on the upper part of Mill Hill), double as many Common Blues, a handful of Chalkhill Blues with some fresh males, five Wall Browns, occasional Small Heaths, frequent Speckled Woods, one Peacock and one restless Clouded Yellow. I declined to visit the lower slopes under the midday sun. There were frequent female Common Blues, but no Brown Argus were spotted. No Gatekeepers were recorded either. An Agriphila micro-moth was spotted.
