JMNR butterfly transect – 4th July 2016

Butterfly numbers have built up over the last few days with Keith Turton recording 32 individuals of 6 species on the week 14 transect walk: Large Skipper (5), Meadow Brown (10), Ringlet (11), Small Skipper (1), Small White (3), Speckled Wood (2).
Weeks 15 and 16 usually produce some of the largest counts of the year, so it will be interesting to see if this is repeated given that the weather remains unsettled.
