Anglesey Butterflies/Moths

It was my first time holidaying in Anglesey & the spot we stayed in was beautiful. We stayed in a little village called Llangaffo in some pretty lodges with an absolutely stunning view. The owner of the lodges owns the land surrounding the lodges so we had an opportunity to walk along incredibly beautiful farmland. I was surprised at the amount of butterflies around & spent the holiday searching for different types, many I'd never seen before.

So here's a small list of the butterflies that we saw over the week.
