A butterflyless December
December appears to have been butterflyless in Nottinghamshire – I have not received a single record for last month.
However, to date I have received over 8000 casual records from January through to November 2016.
If you do have any outstanding 2016 records please could you let me have them by the end do the month.
Do you visit a specific site most weeks between April and October?
A local park? A regular walk with friends or with your dogs? A Notts Wildlife Trust reserve?
If so, I ask you to consider a simplified form of ‘transect’ recording.
A butterphile who lives near to me trailed this successfully last year. His records are no longer casual, they now have added value as we continue to monitor the status of Nottinghamshire butterflies.
If you think you can help please email me directly.
