Peacock Eyes


Summer Butterflies on The South Downs in West Sussex

I’ve read a lot about the decline in the UK butterfly population but today was perfect butterfly weather and we weren’t disappointed with what we saw.

Peacocks, Red Admirals, Silver Washed Fritillaries, Whites, Gatekeepers, Meadow Browns and Tortoiseshells. 2012 was one of the worst years on record for butterflies – hopefully what we experienced today is the beginning of a recovery.
