Head to Headley Heath to see some of southern England's most beautiful butterflies.
We've recorded 28 species per day- how many can you spot?
Female water snipe flies Atherix ibis clasp each other and cluster in big round aggregations on the end of branches overhanging rivers – males entering the swarms are mated repeatedly until they die. The females then lay their eggs in to the water – and all die still in their tight aggregations.
