Suzanne and I spent the day round on the opposite side of London, looking for a couple of new butterflies. The weather wasn't kind (should've paid more attention to the forecast before we went!), but in a few sunnier intervals we managed to catch up with Wood White (at Botany Bay near Chiddingfold) and about 10 rather worn Silver-washed Fritillaries at Straits Inclosure in Alice Holt Forest near Farnham. We also caught up with a pretty good pub lunch at The Parrot in Forest Green... though unlike the butterflies, this didn't linger long enough for photos!
After lunch, we headed home fairly quickly, since I'm still failing to fight off a really annoying cough and feeling pretty tired. No other pork-related symptoms, fortunately, but I think a trip to the doctors is probably still in order.
