(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 noted on transect:
Hairy dragonfly (3)
Cinnabar moth (11)
Banded demoiselle (lots)
Damselflies, various sp. (lots)
