Butterflies and a Moth (Camberwell Beauty)

I went to Cley to see the Silvery Gem and just so it wasn't a trip to see a moth I stopped of at Salthouse Heath and Holt Country Park to see some butterflies.

Highlight has to be the Camberwell Beauty, although all four sightings were brief it was great to see it. Couldn't get any pictures though as total time I saw it stationary probably added up to 2 seconds.

I was impress with the number of butterfly species seen though and here they are.
