With the easterly wind continuing to blow, but at least the temperature has risen a little bit, the species of local butterflies has grown, albeit by not as much as it should. It's still far behind where it should be by now, but at least a Small Copper has now been added to the year list!!
Wall Brown numbers have also increased, but not by a huge amount. However, the male Wall Brown are now defending the tops of the hill in their usual way.
