On the wing at Durlston

A welcome diversion to Durlston on the way home from work provided an excuse to look for butterflies - it was a bit late in the day, and the overcast weather was not ideal, but good numbers of Marbled White and Small Skipper were still on show. Didn't see any Lulworth Skippers - still a bit early for their peak - but some had been seen by the Dorset Countryside rangers earlier. On the way home, this feisty Common Tern landed on the bows of the Sandbanks Ferry.
