Early Butterflies tour ended with 82 species!
Elusive male Inky Skipper

In less than two weeks 82 species of butterflies we have been recorded. Highlights included Southern Swallowtail, Southern and Eastern Festoons, Iolas Blue, Powdered Brimstone, Cleopatra, Gruners Orange Tip, Eastern Greenish Black Tip, Bavius Blue, Grecian and Lesser Fiery Coppers, Dalmatian Ringlet, Camberwell Beauty, Nettle tree  Butterfly, Inky Skipper and many others. One day we have seen more than 4-5 Inky Skippers hill topping, but also posing nicely on the rocks. Many orchids and early flowers were also recorded, as well as many birds and dragonflies. Weather was very favorable with only one of the transfers day of the trip being rainy.

Detailed trip report and tour checklist will be available on the tour page very soon.

Dates for the 2018 tour are Monday 23th April - Saturday 5th May 2018
