 On site between 07:45 and 10:45. White admirals flying from the start, but noticeably less active after 10:00am (very warm). Saw two purple emperor on the ground, one at 09:43 and one at 10:06 both along Broad Drive. Surprised to see so many Red Admirals. Purple Emperor, White Admiral, Comma, Red Admiral, Speckled Wood, Meadow Brown all seen taking ,moisture from damp ground. Count is for species seen before 09:43, after which I was backtracking along the same path in search of more Emperors.
