Not much to report over the last week or so – numbers are generally low.
No ‘new’ species. I expect Large Skipper will be our next to be recorded.
Holly Blue seems to be doing well in our gardens but disappointingly few Brown Argus records.
Toni Lachetta is the only casual observer to have included larvae (caterpillar) nests in his sighting. Please do not forget to record them.
Here is a summary of the relatively few casual sightings over the last two weeks:
My thanks to all who have sent in records, particularly the transect recorders whose efforts are so valuable yet very much understated.
