Ellerbeck 15th Sept

A return of the sun brought more butterfly activity :

1 speckled Wood , approx 8 faded Gatekeepers , 10 Common Blues ( male and female ) , 3 Peacocks and numerous Small Tortoiseshell ( 20 + ) . All these in about a 1 hour visit.

Standing on a soap box , I am concerned about the encroachment of numerous Birch saplings into the rough grassland to the northern sector. This will destroy the butterfly habitat and create an extension to the wood. Has anone any influence with CBC over this !!! If so speak now before it is too late.
