Butterfly Transect 2014

Results so far:  

By the middle of July we have completed 16 of the 26 weeks the butterfly transect is walked.    Already we have counted more than we did in the whole year for 2012 and we are almost up the to 2011 total.   

2013 was a much better year but at the moment we are on course for exceeding that one.  

As in previous years,   the Meadow Brown is the most common species but this year our volunteers have been reporting increased numbers of Brimstone,   Peacock,   Small Tortoiseshell and Marbled White.

For previous years’ data see the Butterfly Transect page
