Small tortoiseshell....................en mass.........



With a count of over  1,200 around the  Cold Edge Dams complex (thanks Pete Smith and Dave Sutcliffe )  today and at least 200 +  around Northowram last week it looks like its fortunes have changed this year at least., if any one else has any counts of over 50 +  I would like to hear from them,, a number (50+) and where they were seen will be fine. Areas of creeping thistle or buddleia are good areas to check..................Also today at least,55 Small whites, 20+ Peacocks and 10 Comma around Northowram.........
