EB Ford Revisitted

After a rigorous and freezing week getting the last remaining Bird Seed Donations out ( EBF Emergency Bird Feeding ) on the FEET non Public Sites it was luxury to start on the volume by EB Ford  - Butterflies in the New Naturalist series . The style of the book having been written circa 1945 is hard work but there are some interesting gems and observations to be re - learned. EB Ford also writ a similar work on Moths

I thought I would just add some notes in this post as I worked through the book for general interest and or discussion given that most of our lepidoptera is quiet


It was interesting to note the historically reporting of Butterflies through the ages and to  note the reporting of the Purple Edged Copper as an early British species ( debatable)

More to follow............
