Butterfly Survey

Sunday 22nd July 2007

I carried out a butterfly survey of my BBS square around Clarke's Farm, Hardwicke, in the sunshine today. The list of species seen is: Small Skipper, Essex Skipper, Large White, Small White, Red Admiral, Peacock, Gatekeeper and Meadow Brown (photo of Essex Skipper © Paul Masters - note the black undersides to the tips of the antennae, the best way of separating from Small Skipper).
