Butterfly Video Clips & 2013 Garden Survey

April 2013. After the coldest March on record butterfly activity is very slow to get going so here’s a couple of video clips, taken in my garden, to keep us going (this is my first YouTube effort – click on the captions!).

January 2014. I couldn’t continue my night-time activities with Kildare Bat Group last summer but I did manage to keep my butterfly counts going.  It turned out to be a good summer afterwards and my garden sightings get a mention in the Garden Survey Report of Butterfly Conservation Ireland’s recently published 2013 Annual Report. The Orange-tip was back but no sign of a Painted Lady so my species count stayed at 11.
