I had the pleasure of lunchtime visits here in the early 1970's when I lived and worked nearby. Much of the interest involved working with bird species, which I took up much later working along the river from concealment filming and photographing kingfishers and wagtails. This took place during the winter, out of season for butterflies, but Mike Robinson is currently recording in the area. 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
