2018 butterfly transect week 2:
Brimstone (6)
Peacock (3)
Comma (1)
Small tortoiseshell (1)

(A transect is a weekly walk that records butterflies in a 5m band on a fixed route, from April to September. This is a way of measuring changes in abundance and variety of butterflies at a site from year to year. It thus doesn't record all species or numbers if they are not on that route.)
