This is an abstract of the much larger expanse of Petts Wood and Hawkwood Estate map. A lot of my interest was photographing fungi, but this Woodland Trust managed area is anecdotally home to the Purple Emperor butterfly, which was reported on oaks bordering the woods and gardens around the woodland. 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
