First of all, let me start off by saying a huge thank you to everyone who has signed up to contribute to the blog so far, and also to everyone who has emailed me with positive feedback. Things have gotten off to a great start and will hopefully continue with more updates, even though the emergence is now past its peak. In the Midlands area, most males are looking fairly sorry for themselves but there are still some fresh females around. Let the onslaught of egg-laying begin!
Ive started working on the gallery which i think is going to be a reasonable size once its completely finished. Im looking in particular for photos of individuals/groups egg searching and ash bashing so please get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you'd like to contribute any.
Just a reminder for anyone thinking about joining the blog, you dont have to post on here regularly. Even if you just have 1 trip per year to seek out the Brownies, we want to hear from you! Please contact me at the above address as i will need to send you an email invite in order to get you signed up.
An update from John Woodruff today who visited Alners Gorse and Lydlinch Common in Dorset this morning - unfortunately, no Brown Hairstreak's seen at all, despite good weather. Does anyone know if the flight period is coming to a close now in southern England?
