Leapt on

A marathon three hour session in the Blaenserchan valley looking for tickable lepidoptera ended in a right royal soaking. This unsuspecting small heath got pounced on by a lying in wait crab spider. The number of active small pearl bordered fritillary peaked six and green hairstreak at just a single. Other notables included an early cinnabar moth. Interesting plants didn't get much beyond a couple of moonwort.
