Butterfly Transect - the results are in!
1613 butterflies of 21 species recorded across our butterfly transect.

Great news about our Three Hagges Woodmeadow butterfly transect!

Our team of Nick, Chris and Meg have done wonders in their first year of serious recording at the woodmeadow.  They managed to walk our transect in every one of the 26 weeks (from the beginning of April to the end of September) in the UK Butterfly Monitoring Scheme.

This is a truly sterling effort.  At other sites across our region, very few transects managed the full 26 weeks.

And all their hard work and dedication really paid off: 1613 butterflies of 21 species!  Only a handful of other transects across our region exceeded this.
