The butterflies are on the wing from the 3rd week in June to the beginning of August.
We would suggest two sites. Buxton Heath and Kelling Heath.
BUXTON HEATH: They can be found by following the footpath through the woods in a northerly direction. Walk for about ½ kilometre to the open part of the heath and follow the sandy pathways along the northern edge of the heath. Other species of interest is the White Admiral which can be seen in July along the southern edge of Buxton Great Wood which borders the heath to the north.
KELLING HEATH: There are a few Silver-studded Blues near the car park, but the greatest numbers can be seen across the road, alongside the railway line and the level crossing, which are in a southerly direction from the car park.
