Butterfly Days.

At last some decent weather for the poor butterflies.  Plenty around in our local area yesterday as we took a walk along Hardwick Dene looking for the White Letter Hairstreaks but alas did not locate any.  We did however manage to see Comma, Holly and Common Blue, Specked Wood, Small Heath and Skipper and a Red Admiral.  Today we went back to Smardale Gill and  saw Scotch Argus and Dark Green Fritillary which we had gone to see.  There were also lots of Small Heath and Skipper and Common Blue along with Brown Argus too.
We also came across this shrew on the walk back to the car, cute little chap.
