Butterfly Transect 2014

Results to mid August

Results are now available for 20 of the 26 weeks the butterfly transect is walked.    The total number of butterflies counted has reached 2594 which is already higher than the totals for every year since 2006.  

The Meadow Brown is still the most common species. The Ringlet,  Hedge Brown (Gatekeeper) and Common Blue are now featuring more strongly and their pictures can be found on the Butterfly Transect page. The Brimstone,   Peacock,   Small Tortoiseshell and Marbled White are still well represented and,  since week 16, large numbers of Small Skippers have been reported.
