Bar a small number of Siberian Winter Damselflies a few weeks earlier, my 2018  season for Odonata really kicked off in May with very good numbers of both dragonflies and damselflies flying from the very first day of the month.

Downy Emerald



Amazing weather throughout the month, producing many species early this year - Baltic Grayling, Clouded Apollo, Violet Copper, Green-underside Blue and Bog Fritillary among the butterflies flying, Downy Emeralds, Golden-ringed Dragonfly and Norfolk Hawker among the dozen species of dragonflies.

Small Tortoiseshell



With rising temperatures, so the butterfly season truly began. From fairly good numbers in the first half of the month, with numerous Small Tortoiseshells and Brimstones, plus Camberwell Beauties, the second half of the month saw an absolute explosion in numbers, the first Swallowtails on the wing, plus butterflies flying in their hundreds by month end.
