While trying to track down Robert's Pasque flowers (see below) and which we think we found, plus four others on the slope overlooking Bear Hill (where we have failed to find them for several years), we also saw a small number of Duke of Burgundy butterflies being fairly lively in the sun, at the usual place on Rodborough.

The Early Purple orchid are now coming through in good numbers on the Common, and we found our first Green Winged just emerging, not far from Tom Long's Post

Update:  One Duke also seen on Bownham Common recently (8th May).
