Butterfly identification competition

During the second half of summer back in 2010, Woodlore Field Staff member Sarah Day took some fantastic photos of a butterfly that she had spotted. The first person who can correctly identify the species will win a £10.00 Woodlore Voucher, which can be used against any items of kit in our Online Shop or against a Bushcraft Course of your choice. Good luck!

Well done to Jerome, who was the first to correctly identify this butterfly as a Male Common Blue (Polyommatus icarus). A £10.00 Woodlore Voucher is on its way to you!

    Sorry, this is an Adonis Blue (Polyommatus bellargus)

    I incorrectly wrote the Latin name, sorry.

    I’m thinking it could well be a tired looking Adonis Blue, if it isn’t then my next guess would be a maggot in a Peter Storm!
