I did the Butterfly Transect today. Temperature 29 degrees and the butterflies were out. Last week the total count was 13 butterflies this week 309. This is an exceptional count for week 12. With both our key species out – Silver-washed Fritillary (15) and White Admirals (10)
I also found a plant that I have not found in Grafton before – Grass Vetchling. Its a plant I usually associate with rich grassland.
