Wall Brown, female. Longstone Edge, Derbyshire. August 2013.
When I was a lad Wall Browns were common on chalky heathland and in some hedgerows. When I saw a flash of orange, I hoped for
a fritillary, but it was always a Wall, the disappointing butterfly. Now they are extinct from many of their former habitats and rare in
others, so it is never a disappointment to see one.
