    My challenge to myself this year was to see a Wall Brown. Something I hadn't seen for many many years. I traveled to a known site and was very pleased to see several a few weeks ago.
    However............today I was just walking on the downs and saw this little beauty

    Somehow it seemed just a little more special because it was such a surprise :)

    Very nice, I'd have been over the moon with that sighting - I don't think a Wall Brown has been seen in my area (Bucks) for a few years.

    They've disappeared from most of this area too, just a few left mostly near the coast. I used to have them in my garden. :confused:

    We have loads of those here - I didn't realise they were rare.

    Ooo where are you?

    I think there are areas that they are still abundant it's just those places are getting less and less :(

    There was a slight recovery in Wall numbers up here this year, and not just on coastal sites. The best numbers were in a disused quarry north of Manchester, with people seeing around 30-40 on a good day.
