On Friday the foreast for today looked dry and sunny but, by this morning, showers were forecast from 1pm. Unfortunately the rain arrived about 11.30 and persisted the rest of the day. However we managed to reach the stretch of the Dyke with the Lizard orchids before the rain set in. It was very windy so not ideal for flower portraits but managed a few Lizard orchids and a Pyramidal. The butterflies were mainly resting out of the wind and rain like this Ringlet.
