27/07/14 - Sm Tortoiseshell, Gatekeeper, Ringlet, M Brown, Common Blue, Peacock, Marbled White, Silver washed Fritillary, Sm Copper, and I'm pretty sure I saw a Clouded Yellow too. I tried chasing it to no avail and went back several times on subsequent days but didn't see one. It wasn't a Brimstone as it had dark edges to the wings so...These were all seen on the "new" bank cleared on the path between Downley and Hughenden Manor.
