Having devoted my diary pages mostly to birds over the years, and to mammals in 2015, I decided to focus particularly on the Lepitoptera of the Baltic States this year, posting monthly accounts through the butterfly season (March-September), also peppered with whatever other wildlife I happen across.

 

 

 

 

My challenge is to see 100 species during the year in the three Baltic States, namely Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia, hopefully also tracking down some of the more elusive species in the region.

The Baltic States are characterized by an extremely diverse selection of butterflies, this especially true of Lithuania in the south. At the season's peak in early July, the range and abundance of species is truly dazzling, a tantalizing 50 species possible in eastern Lithuania on an exceptional day, including many species of fritillaries, blues and coppers.

Yellow-legged Tortoiseshell

 

An excellent start to April, an excellent end to April, but three weeks of cold nothiness in between! With warm sunny days gracing the beginning and end of the month, the superb selection of butterflies in the first days included a Camberwell Beauty and multiple Yellow-legged Tortoiseshells, while the month's end saw a magnificent eleven species, including Large Tortoiseshell and flights of Holly Blues, Map Butterflies et al.
