Baffled Butterflies

'click on text above to read'
Another interesting article from the latest BCYB by H.Frost, Argus no 55 showing another reason for population crashes in Butterfly populations.It was a poor year for most species in Calderdale except the Browns with the best ever year for Ringlet and good numbers of Meadow Brown,Speckled wood and the ever increasing Gatekeeper.This was mirrored in the rest of Yorkshire.I think I only saw 4 Painted Ladys in the whole year.?Many thanks for all the new photos in the gallery its looking quite a good reference source now.
