Brown Hairstreak butterfly
Brown Hairstreak butterfly
A West Sussex speciality, and you have to be in the right place at the right time to perhaps see one. This is a female, with orange wing patches. The females are most likely to be seen perching and fluttering on hedges not far from blackthorn, the larval foodplant. This one is perched on White Bryony. The males are rarely seen, spending most of the time high up on trees.
