PURPLE EMPEROR at Ivinghoe Beacon

Incombe Hole Fri 4 July 7

Paid a quick visit to this area not expecting much in the way of bird activity but the butterflies and insects were numerous. While on the main Icknield Way footpath, above Income Hole, a dark butterfly caught my eye fluttering above the path. Fortunately it landed and I obtained some pictures and was very surprised to identify it as a PURPLE EMPEROR (Sally Douglas)
