WCP from Kenfig Rivermouth to Margam Moors (Sunday 18/5/14)

An early Large Skipper (seen very well) on the south facing slope of Morfa Tip and a Mother Shipton here too. It was cracking day for butterflies and seeing 15 Dingy Skippers and 20+ Brown Argus was a real treat, mainly found near the Kenfig sidings. Walls and Small Blues in good numbers with Common Blue, Peacock, Small Tortoiseshell, Orange Tip, Brimstone, Small White & Green-veined White all noted along the Wales Coast Path.

  1. A very early record for the Large Skipper - the first in the UK was only seen the previous day (in Devon).

    I saw plenty of Brown Argus on Friday at Merthyr Mawr.
