Plenty of Brown Hairstreak eggs, Soberton. I haven't finished surveying the hedges that I found Brown Hairstreak eggs in last year (south of Soberton), but initial search indicates higher densities. There were 25 eggs counted in the patch of suckering blackthorn shown in the second photo (a particular 'hot spot'). [Posted by Angus McCullough]
