Butterflies

Friday, June 19th 2015

During the summer we complete weekly butterfly surveys which cover the majority of the reserve. So far, with the cold spring weather, we have found many species emerging later than usual and in fewer numbers. Last Tuesday, however, saw warmer weather and higher counts of many species. It was particularly nice to have the first specimens of Large Skipper and Small Heath recorded. John even managed to get this brilliant photo of a Small Heath feeding on Clover.

Our thanks go to the volunteers who help with these surveys during the summer months.
