Marsh Fritillaries June 2018

Last week a group visited Shallowford to photograph the rare Marsh Fritillary butterfly in reghards to promote and sell wildlife friendly food, highlighting rare or at risk creatures which include the Marsh Fritillary.

Thery had a fantastic day filming the butterflies and the weather was perfect while there must have been 50+ Marsh Fritillaries flying around the meadows, visiting flowers and mating.

Also seen were a few small pearl Bordered Gritillaries too, which was a bonus.

The photographers said,

“What an amazing place East Shallowford is – a complete rare buttery paradise!”
