Quest for the False Apollo, 29 March - 6 April 2018.
Written by Jos   

False Apollo



One of the rarest and most dramatic of Europe's butterflies, the European range of False Apollo is restricted to just a handful of localities in north-eastern Greece and associated offshore islands. Flying at the end of March and early April, this nine-day trip was primarily dedicated to finding this butterfly.

Balkan Marbled White



With key species flying at different times of the year, this trip was broken into two segments – a spring trip targeting False Apollo and Southern Festoon in the north of the country, then an early summer trip to the mountain massifs of Parnassus and Chelmos in the south, hoping to find Europe's smallest butterfly, the Grass Jewel, plus a rich abundance of and diversity of other species.

 Scarce Fritillary



Only in Lithuania for the first half of the month, but should be top of the season and hopefully take my year list over and above the magical 100 mark. Superb start with a fantastic Scarce Fritillary in the west, plus Scarce Large Blue, Marbled Fritillary and more Ilex Hairstreaks.
