Ivinghoe Beacon & Aylesbury Vale, from Whipsnade Downs, Bedfordshire.

A pleasant walk last Sunday over the chalk grasslands of Whipsnade Downs, searching for Duke of Burgundy butterflies, a rapidly declining species in the UK. Pleased to find more than twenty specimens. Also spotted Green Hairstreak, Red Admiral and Dingy Skipper butterflies.
