Many years since we have observed Walls on the Hills so delighted to see a few individuals today. Observed nectaring on Scabious & Knapweed and returning to a favourite sunbathing spot. Very alert to movement and when disturbed would close wings and blend into the background. First time I have observed an individual tilt wings to the floor, which from a distance makes them almost impossible to see (Photo 3). Despite lots of attempts, only managed one out of focus shot of upper wings (Photo 4).
