(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 of note on transect:
Hobby (1)
Red underwing moth (1)
Common darter (4)
Migrant hawker (2)
Hornets (at least 6)
