We - Captain Butterfly himself (my superhero), Bea, and me -went off to do a couple of his butterfly tetrads today. We have to get them finished before the butterfly season ends. Col and I also did one locally yesterday afternoon. And Shirley and David, Bea's friends who are staying in Chichester came over to visit Bea yesterday and took us all out for lunch at our local - which was very kind and much appreciated.
At Kitthurst Hill, today, there was a little black calf standing well away from his herd, watching something over the fence. I went to have a look and it turned out to be a gaggle of pheasants... or whatever the collective noun for pheasants is. He seemed spellbound by them. Perhaps the first time he has seen them?
And maybe the last time too, poor little soul.
We lunched at the George and Dragon - NOT off beef - in fact Col and Bea shared a Ploughman's lunch and I had a goatscheese tart with salad.
It was a beautiful sunny day.
