A Good Day in North Yorkshire.

A good day today for seeing butterflies in North Yorkshire. My first good find was a Gatekeeper seen along the woodland walk at Monk Park Farm just outside of Thirsk. Later in the day at Woodlands Fisheries at Carlton Minniott (my son was checking out the fishing there) I saw a Brimstone, quite a few more Gatekeepers and lots of speckled wood and other species. I could have spent hours walking around there taking pictures, much to the annoyance of the fishermen probably!
