A Week of Sunshine

What a difference a week of sunshine makes from 52 to 295 butterflies on the transect 41 Silver Washed and 22 White Admirals.  We also found Purple Hairstreak in the wood and the first Small Skipper. Plus a Hummingbird Hawk-moth.

Butterflies are Improving

After a rather poor patch the Butterfly Count at Grafton improved yesterday – Ringlet, White and Red admiral and the first Silver Washed Fritillary.

Mid-June Walk

What’s happening in Grafton while we have been away in Scotland? The Large Skippers have arrived together with Meadow Brown, and Ringlet. No sign of White Admiral yet. Also some pics of Long-horned Beetle and Blue-tailed Damselfly
