Ever since i first laid eyes upon the brilliance that is The Purple Empire, I'd thought about creating something similar for the Brown Hairstreak. Regular Hairstreakers are usually kept busy throughout the entire year, whether it be egg searching, caterpillar hunting or trying to spot those elusive adults in the blackthorn and ash trees. With so much activity going on, i thought that documenting sightings, observations, photographs and trip reports from around the country in one place would be an excellent way to keep up to date with all the latest Brownie goings on.
The aim is to have lots of contributors who will post their own entries on anything Brown Hairstreak related. If anyone would like to do so, please do not hesitate to email me (Gillian Thompson) at email@example.com. Once ive added your email address to the contributors list, you will receive an email inviting you to join the blog. You need to have a Google account which you can easily sign up for by following the instructions provided in the email. Posting on the blog is a doddle but do let me know if anyone has any problems and i will help as best i can.
Heres to happy blogging :)
