Results: 2023:

A better year of recording and results on a par with 2021 but with  trends which follow the county trends.  The big losers on dry sites like this are Green-viened White and Small Heath as can be seen.   In addition Peacock and Small Tortoiseshell as countywide took heavy loses after the very hot summer of 2002. The winners  were largely migrant Red Admiral  and quadrupling in Meadow Brown  cancelling out the loses.


2021 results

Small Heath is very much the dominant species  on the fells along with Green viened Whites.
