Barnack Hills and Holes NNR
I know Barnack Hills and Holes (TF 076047) isn’t within VC55 but it’s only a couple of miles the other side of Stamford and worth a visit to see the Chalkhill Blues. I visited the site today and never left the car park as there were 18 of them getting minerals from a dried out puddle. I watched them for an hour and a Brown Argus kept on returning to the same puddle. All the Butterflies I saw today were in pristine condition and very easy to photograph.
