Butterflies thin on the ground…

Transect today very few butterflies.  Some pristine Small Coppers and Red Admirals.

The volunteers finished cutting the over grown Blackthorn last week.  The local farmers have been flailing their hedges this week so any Brown Hairstreak eggs will be lost.  It is becoming even more important to manage Blackthorn within the wood or we are going to loose Brown Hairstreak in Grafton area.
