The return of the Small Tortoiseshell
With a count of over 1,200 around Cold Edge Dams (thanks Pete Smith and Dave Sutcliffe ) today and at least 200 + number around Northowram last week it looks like its fortunes have changed this year at least., if any one else has any counts of over 50 + I would like to hear from them,, a number and where they were seen will be fine. Areas of creeping thistle or budlia are good areas to cheque..................Also today at least, 85 Small whites, 45+ Peacocks , 16 Comma , 6 Small Copper in and around Northowram.........
