France again

We arrived at Beziers Airport just after 4pm Continental time.  The drive to Montcelebre produced two superb Rollers sitting on roadside perches.

Arriving home we noted we had a lot of work to do on the garden.  Our lawns are "wild flower meadows" with hordes of butterflies as we hoped.  Large numbers of Great Banded Graylings on all the buddleias and elsewhere Scarce Swallowtails, Spanish Gatekeepers, Clouded Yellows, Pale Clouded Yellows, Cleopatras and Western Marbled Whites.

Looking forward to tomorrow and finding more insects and some local birds.
