There were quite a few of these fluttering around at Fontmell Down today along with the Chalkhills. No Adonis Blues yet. Small Heath butterflies like the Adonis Blues, have two generation in one summer. These Small Heaths are the second this year, the Adonis Blues second generation is yet to emerge.
