Help for Britain's butterflies

butterfly on hawkbitMay 18th – 26th 2013 is Butterfly Conservation’s “Save our Butterflies Week”.   All kinds of events are being run all over the country to help people understand some of our most threatened and little-known butterflies.

At Meadowmat, we’ve sent Director Fred Hilsdon out and about with his camera to find out how many different butterfly species and their caterpillars he can snap.

We’re thinking that if the weather stays dull and damp, he might not be too lucky.  Although yesterday, in Angela’s garden, she spotted an orange-tip, a brimstone and a little blue number that was going too fast to be properly identified
