Butterflies Vanishing

Guardian article - UK butterflies vanish from nearly half of the places they once flew

Interesting but depressing report in the Guardian by the Nature Correspondent Patrick Barkham who wrote an article about us back in 2021. I think we fit exactly the reference to “targeted conservation work” but this report serves to highlight a much wider and altogether more serious decline.

Meanwhile Tom Parker, who has been doing some conservation work in the wood over recent weeks, tells me that it is looking really good this year with a lot of wild flowers just starting to emerge.
