Butterflies in Brampton

July 24, 2012

Butterflies have not had a good year so far in Brampton, or elsewhere. In spite of our joy and finally finding the Silver-Studded Blue Butterflies on Buxton Heath, the more common species were not appearing. Then a brief respite in the wet weather gave rise to a brief burst of Red Admirals, particularly on the early Buddlejas. Then, since last weekend 21/22nd July, the Ringlets, Commas and Meadow Browns appeared. Helen was alarmed to hear that Cabbage Whites had been seen near the allotments – apparently her vegetable plants are at a vulnerable stage.
