As in previous years, a small but dedicated band of enthusiasts have recorded butterfly sightings during the summer of 2014. Each week, a recorder walked around the Lake recording all butterflies seen. Thanks to our excellent team of butterfly recorders, Carol and Dick Beeden, Cliff and Jacky Buckton, Carrol Scott, and leader Barbara James, we have some interesting results.
