Insh Marshes Butterfly Walk - July 25th 2019

Only two people turned up to this event which was to publicise BC’s Big Butterfly Count. The weather was perfect – hot and sunny – and we had a very pleasant walk. We didn’t bother with a BBC 15-minute count but just totted up species seen during a one and a half hour walk. At the start I guessed that we would see 8 species but in fact we saw 10 species, including a freshly emerged Scotch Argus which was my first of the year. You can probably guess what the other species were. Full list below:

Ringlet, Meadow Brown, Scotch Argus, Dark Green Fritillary, Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary (looking worn), Small Heath, Small Tortoiseshell, Red Admiral, Common Blue & Green-veined White.
