Green Hairstreak

After watching for suitable weather, today was my second attempt to see Green Hairstreak on the hillside behind Rothbury.
Thought I'd stock up with provisions at the butchers, before climbing Blaeberry Hill, with steak pie, veggie samosa and duck and spring roll wrap, just in case it was long effort.
As you might expect, as soon as I got over the stile onto the hillside, there were three Green Hairstreak, right in front of me.

I gave the face of the hill a good thrashing, twice, and saw one more.
Later at the bottom of the hill I saw my first Large White of the year
