Big Butterfly Count

http://www.bigbutterflycount.org/
These are the butterflies we saw during our count.
All but the last were seen round midday on Saturday 24 July.


Essex Skipper






Gatekeeper






Small Copper






Common Blue






White






Peacock






Red Admiral (seen the previous weekend.)




I also learnt that the main difference between a butterfly and a moth is that butterflies have drumstick shaped antennae and moths have anything except that shape.
