Results Are In!

The weather’s not been brilliant, but we have managed to do at least one Big Butterfly Count in the garden already. Maybe not spectacular results, but 10 individuals of 6 species isn’t bad in 15 minutes. Getting their 15 minutes of fame were 4 Gatekeepers, 2 Large Whites, 1 Small White, 1 Ringlet, 1 Small Tortoiseshell and 1 Comma. The buddleia bush was not surprisingly a favourite for this season’s butterflies to be seen on, but our scabby old blue lounger proved popular with the Comma. Still plenty more time to get out and do a count – you’ve got until the 9th August.Comma Gatekeeper Large White Ringlet Small Tortoiseshell Small White
