10.40 - 12.30. Walked along the Drove route from Wilton to the Dinton end of Grovely. WB unexpected. Whites regularly seen, but concentrated in scrubby areas rich in (much maligned) ragwort. RAs mostly seen on south-facing flowering ivy. Conditions sufficiently benign to tempt some hibernators out - it is good to know there are some!
