Unseasonal Greetings from Halnaker Windmill

I was pleasantly surprised today, to share the summit of Halnaker Hill with this unseasonal migrant species.

The butterfly was using the south facing aspects of the WWII searchlight placement and the unimproved chalk grassland to bask in the mid-day sun.

A hasty phone shot secured the record.
