Late May Trip


Our very first trip to Ireland! We're after the Irish subspecies of Dingy Skipper and Brimstone at The Burren, plus Green-veined White, Small Copper, Orange-tip, Wood and Real's Wood Whites, Common Blue plus Marsh Fritillary f. hibernica. Help!

Mid July Trip


Our second trip into Ireland is in search of Graylings clarensis & hibernica and Meadow Brown. Plus maybe securing Marsh Fritillary as larva and 2nd generation Irish Brimstones if we missed them in May. Thoughts welcomed!

Cumbrian sites


This is new territory for us. We didn't attempt any English colonies during our 2010 Blitz so ANY advice or help would be much appreciated. Doubly so in fact, this is a whole NEW SPECIES for both of us!!!

Scottish Mountain Ringlets


We tried for these at Ben Lawers but were beaten by poor weather. A second attempt a few weeks later gave us the weather, but we'd missed the flight period. Grrrrr... Any other sites known by anyone??? We'll try Ben Lawers again for starters.

Your secret recipes please!


We've never tried baiting His Majesty before. There's a whole plethora of suggestions about best bait. What works best for you, and do different populations have different preferences? Anybody tried baiting at Epsom/Ashtead/Bookham Commons?
