They are a rare species only found in a few localised sites in the UK, the Cotswolds is one of their strongholds

There are a number of places to see them in the South West Fran, Prestbury Hill is definitely the best site, although Rodborough Common in Stroud is also good

Not many around here either Ron, only a few aged common blues, some large skippers and burnet moths and the odd small tortoiseshell
