Butterfly watching in a group led by experts

We could have spent Sunday afternoon TV viewing, watching the Wimbledon men’s tennis final, the British F1 Grand Prix, or stage 15 of the Tour de France, instead we went butterfly watching in Horsell Common.

The butterfly watching event, organised by the Friends of Gordon’s School, was led by two lepidopterists, Lee Slatter and Geoff Eaton from the Surrey Branch of the Butterfly Conservation Society. 

Though not far from us in Surrey Heath, we’ve never previously been to Horsell Common. It’s not as open as the heathland in Surrey Heath, being more wooded, and with narrower paths. Here are photos of butterflies we saw.
