The male Satyr is darker brown with less pale patterning on the wings than the female, males may be almost black in fact.
Meadow Browns can be difficult to distinguish. The insect to the left has a single forewing spot and is most likely a common Meadow Brown - maniola jurtina. However the insect above has two wing spots which Mick pointed out means it must be a female Oriental or Dusky Meadow Brown. The smaller spot having white dot means it is most likely an Oriental Meadow Brown, a new species for my list.
This juvenile Northern Wheatear had obviously not learned to be wary of people as it showed no fear in our presence. It looked very scruffy in its transitional moult from fledgling-down to adult plumage.
We were fortunate to have Mick´s expertise in showing us the rare plant species, some of which are endemic to Sierra Nevada.
Below is another cracking good shot of an Oriental Meadow Brown taken by Elena with her Panasonic Lumix compact camera. This is a new species for my list so it was nice that she took such a good clear shot for the record.
