Butterflies & Moths


Clouded Yellow @ Sandy Point. There were at least two clouded yellows on Sandy point NR and visible from the beach at 14:30 today. [Posted by John Goodspeed]


Oxenbourne Down. After such a good summer and warm autumnal weather it’s a great shame to see places such as Oxenbourne Down now closing down for the winter. There were still up to a dozen species still on the wing on 16th, and these were Chalkhill Blue (5), Meadow Brown up to (30) Small Heath(15) Common Blue (18) Brown Argus (1) Brimstone (21) Small Copper (3) Speckled Wood (5) Several whites, Large, Small and Green-Veined. A Peacock on the wing after several weeks of not noting these probably awoke after being in slumber by the warmth of the weather at the moment and Red Admiral (3) also a Silver 'Y' Moth.
