Warton Crag - Little Owls and High Brown Frit

Joined the SOS group to Warton Crag for a butterfly hunt but we diverted to Eric Morcambe pools during the rainy morning (and a bacon butty at Leighton Moss). Redshanks aplenty here with a couple of Knot and a single 'Spotted' seen in the flight pic.

Once the sun came out, lots of common butterfly species on show including this Small Tortoiseshell but the High brown Fritillary was our target and obvious highlight.

A family group of young Little Owls a nice surprise also!
