Part Two. Return to the Golan Heights.
Written by Jos   

Eastern Brown Argus

 

Following my earlier trip for Lebanese Festoons and other early season species in April, this short visit from 8-10 June was very much a follow-up, concentrating only on the uplands of the Golan Heights and Mount Meron areas and targeting the many mid-summer species that inhabit these highland regions. Abundant butterflies, including Ascentria's Fritillary, Little Tiger Blue and both Tawny and Lebanese Silverline.

Butterflies of Israel and the Golan Heights, 2019.

Levantine Silverline

 

Travelling from 20-29 April and 8-10 June, this two-part trip was designed to sample an assortment of the spring butterflies that exist across this diverse territory, Lebanese Festoon and False Apollo among them, then to return later in the year to concentrate on the mountains of the north, home to many species not possible earlier in the season, including the newly discovered Ascentria's Fritillary and Levantine Silverline.

Delight of Spring. May 2019.
Written by Jos   

Traditionally an excellent month in Lithuania, the numbers of butterflies rapidly increasing as the month progresses, including flights of some of the most enchanting species in the country.

Good month, with Swallowtails, Dingy Skippers and Clouded Apollos among the 20 species seenin the first half of the month, then a dramatic upswing with almost 40 species on the wing, including more Clouded Apollos, highly localised Mallow Skippers and Violet Coppers, plus other goodies such as Bog Fritillary, Little Blue and Green-underside Blue.
