Written by Jos   

Meleagers Blue



By tradition, July is pretty much the peak of the butterfly season in Lithuania. No exception this year, many superb species seen, including Black Hairstreak, Assmann's Fritillary, Scarce Fritillary, Tufted Marbled Skipper. However, for one event, it stands over and above past years - the return of the colonists, Meleager's Blue and Marbled White.

An amazing transformation from the preceding month, sun taking over and an immediate surge of butterflies - twenty species in the first half of the month, including Dingy Skipper, Camberwell Beauties and Swallowtails, then a superb selection thereafter, not least Scarce Swallowtail, Baltic Grayling and Violet Copper.

Camberwell Beauty




All about a day! April started off with a real punch - a spectacular day of high temperatures and superb butterfly action (Camberwell Beauties, Large Tortoiseshell, Red Admiral, etc). Then it came to a grinding halt with temperatures dipping for the rest of the month and even a few days of snow!
