Brandon Marsh butterfly transect week 26:
(last week of recording season - numbers now well down!)

Small copper (1)
Red admiral (1)
Speckled wood (1)
Comma (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.)

Also on transect: ruddy darter; rush veneer moth
