I did the Butterfly Transect yesterday – warm and sunny day. It took 4 hours as I also spent some time looking for Brown Hairstreak.
228 Butterflies recorded and 16 species this is an above average count for week 20. BUT I have still not found a Brown Hairstreak despite the 100’s of hours I have spent looking. I did have received odd records from visitors last week.
I have checked my records for sightings of Brown Hairstreak – the next three weeks is by far the best time for finding adults.
