Countrywide Butterfly Survey

We did our survey area this afternoon, unfortunately the sun did not shine but it was warm 18c.
Results are sent in on line via the BTO site. These totals include the survey area + parts of lower Cold Edge and parts of Ovenden Moor. About 2 and half hours in total.
Large Skipper x 2
Ringlet x 50 counted but there were a lot more around
Meadow Brown x 3
Unidentified White x 1
Small Tortoiseshell x 1
Antler Moth x 1

Perhaps if we had been able to go earlier in the week with the hot sunshine we would probably have managed more of the above as well as other species !!
