Midsummer Butterfly Recording Day

On our annual butterfly-monitoring day at Loe Bar, the weather was hot due to a heatwave, with a temperature of 20 degrees Celsius and a light southwesterly wind. The sky was mostly blue with some cumulus clouds. The tide was going out and was at a midway point. Due to the drought, there were brown patches of grass and the paths were very dry.

Since 2007, I have been recording butterflies on the cliffs as you walk south towards Loe Bar with butterfly expert Phil Harris. Each year people join them and help to record the day. Phil teaches newcomers how to look for butterflies and also about the amazing life cycle of the Silver-studded Blue.
