Peak Season. July 2016
Written by Jos   

White-letter Hairstreak

 

So the peak of the butterfly season unfolds, unfortunately very mixed weather. Nevertheless, many rare and scarce butterflies seen, taking me to the target of 100 species in the year. Notable finds included Marbled Fritillary, Twinspot Fritillary, Titania's Fritillary, Cranberry Fritillary, multiple White-letter Hairstreaks, several Bluespot Hairstreaks and, a complete surprise, a population of Marbled Whites,  a species that should not be in Lithuania.

 Orange Tip

 

Sunny days to start and finish the month, an immediate upswing in the numbers of butterflies, Orange Tips and Map Butterflies abundant early on, plus Camberwell Beauties, three Bath Whites and a  emergence of many hundreds of Green Hairstreaks. Towards the month's end, a second wave of butterflies saw many species on the wing, not least Pale Clouded Yellows, Queen of Spain Fritillaries and Little Blues.
