Insight into Grayling (Hipparchia semele): its distribution is mainly coastal around much of the UK showing a preference for well-drained ground, baked dry by the sun, but it may also be found inland on lowland heaths where some colonies may contain hundreds of butterflies.
When it stops to rest it rarely opens its wings and blends in beautifully with its surroundings making it one of the best camouflaged butterflies to be found (or not found!) in the UK.
