I took a walk along the marsh bank at Hendy Cricket Ground yesterday, my usual haunt for butterflies. The pictures below show the stark difference in conditions from this year to last. The path would normally have Common Blue, Burnet, Skippers, Burnet Companions and the expected whites. This year, NOTHING !
2018 above, 2017 below
I did though, have numerous Gatekeeper
4 Common Blue on disturbed land at the entrance
Several Small Copper on the parched grass and a good number of Speckled Wood in the tree lined areas.
