Butterfly Holiday, July 8 - 15, 2015 Species list

Black Hairstreak

Here follows see the species list of the tour.
Our Greenwings LT colleague Mr. Rob Parker commented with appropriate portion of humour:

"I have attached  spreadsheets showing the sites visited and the 46 species that we saw.
Also attached are a few of the photos John took of our encounter with ... [other species].
Our sincere thanks to Rein and Peeter for their important contribution to this trailblazing tour for Greenwings. Not only did they do everything  expected of local guides, but they proved adept at spotting butterflies – and netting them too.
The itinerary forms a fine basis for future tours. Although the wet weather and poor butterfly season limited us this year, the timing seems a reasonable compromise between missing the early species – or being too early for the important summer species."

Cranberry Blue
