Foresters back at Chalfont St Peter
I am pleased to report that foresters are back in force in Chalfont St Peter for the third year running. I spotted fifteen today all nectaring on field scabious apart from one floating upside-down in a cattle trough which expired when I attempted a rescue. They were widely spread over a large area of rough ground which makes for slow-going so I couldn't search it all. I suspect there were many more than fifteen there. Also there were six-spot burnets, cauchas rufimitrella and common plume.
