White-letter Hairstreaks

Went to a good site in Durham today for White-letter Hairstreak butterflies today. I only managed to see 1 and got some pretty bad shots of it unfortunately. It was sitting in perfect position and just as I went to take the shot it took off and flew away. It went and sat higher on a tree leaf and got some very poor pics which can be seen below. However got a brilliant view of Meadow Brown, Small Skipper, very fresh Comma, Green-veined White, and Large White. I will return soon next week on a better weather day in the hope I see some more White-letter Hairstreaks as well as Purple Hairstreaks.
