JMNR butterfly transect 5th September 2015

Week 23 and a drop in the temperature combined with a shortage of sun did not provide John Parlby with ideal conditions for seeing butterflies. Nevertheless, he managed to spot a late-flying Gatekeeper, 3 Peacock, 2 Red Admiral, a Small Copper, a lingering Small Skipper, a Small Tortoiseshell, 3 Small White, and 2 Speckled Wood.

In addition, but outside of the defined recording area, John noticed a Painted Lady (butterfly).
