The Chalkland Blue, as its name suggests a chalk grassland speciality and another Butterfly that I seemed to have overlooked. I have been waiting several weeks now for this species to show itself, and finally at Queensdown Warren they appeared, this apparently one of there favoured localities, usally making an appearance in the last weeks of July.

This is my third new species of Butterfly this season, very happy to see this one, not particularly rare, just need to go the right habitat at the right time.
