06/06/2017 Recording on North Hill Malvern. The temperature was in the high 20’s and the Grayling were out in numbers. I counted 32 the highest count for me. A difficult species to count as it has the best camouflage, so when its not active almost impossible to see.
We have now been using iRecord for casual butterfly records for 5 months – Jan – May 2017. We have 2648 records and 25 Species – so far. Below the table of results. The figures refer to records not total counts of butterflies.
Orange-tip is by far the most recorded followed by Speckled Wood and Holly Blue.
So keep recording…..
A visit to Bury Ditches to monitor Wood Whites – what a lovely day 25 decrees and 100’s of butterflies. 25/05/2007
A visit to Haugh Wood to monitor Wood Whites and look for Pearl-bordered Fritillary. The wood looked great and also the Plantlife Reserve in the north of the wood.
After our winter work on the disused railway line several of us went to monitor Grizzled and Dingy Skippers. Two areas surveyed – SUSTRAN line and the Triangle.
Two Visits 9th and 23rd May 2017
