I was recently asked to survey this area for possible butterfly species. On touring the site I was able to conclude that with a degree of managment I could see no reason why its capacity to yield rich butterfly life was perfectly possible. A lake has been added to what was the main fairway, with attractions such as boating, which should also have the effect of inviting in water birds. The woods are replete with oaks and I would expect to see the purple hairstreak and possibly other woodland butterflies: white admiral and silver washed fritillary Any help that can be offered with recording or management ideas website improvements, etc. is welcome. There are many factors influencing the emergence and distribution of butterflies in our area. This independent survey aims to provide an in depth, on-line reference for butterfly enthusiasts, agencies concerned with climate change, schools and members of the general public. It is also constructed for the sharing of information and data between enthusiast - subject to confidentiality laws. This information might be of either positive or negative overall concern in the maintenance of existing or proposed butterfly habitats. Each species page represents literally hundreds of dedicated observations. text records can also be submitted to 07456399785
