Uskmouth Butterfly Transect 21st May
Sheila did the transect on Wednesday, before all the rain kicked in! The transect week changes each year, dependant on what day the 1st April is, so this year each week runs from Tuesday to Monday. Its tricky choosing the best day each week to do the transect with our weather! Wednesday was probably the only day this week suitable.
She recorded 88 butterflies of 6 species with exactly half of them being green-veined white: 44 green-veined white, 21 speckled wood, 9 peacock, 9 common blue, 4 large white and 1 small copper.
