Thank you!

Thanks Debbie - I was so pleased not only to see the butterfly but also to manage to photograph it before frightening it away! Kept an eye out but only other butterflies I saw there yesterday were a small number of peacocks

I live near Sheffield so will definitely be returning to Deep Dale would love to see some more green hairstreaks & see what other butterflies are there, with the weather finally warming up. Lovely for flowers also - the cowslips are well on there way now, only saw one early purple orchid actually in flower. Have a nice photo of a sedge which I must also put on ispot - will have a stab at trying to identify it first!

Am I right in thinking that ispot posts are now linked to recording schemes? I expect might be a good idea to send records in somewhere else anyway, I've started keeping a note of any butterflies I've seen so far this year. Am member of Butterfly Consv but the Yorkshire Branch, so I'll have a look at BC website for where to send records for East Mids.

Best wishes, Alison Jinks

Records from iSpot

Yes, records from iSpot can now be passed on to recording schemes/local record centres if they ask from them, but at the moment this is not done automatically.

For the moment, I would suggest passing your butterfly records onto your local recorder. As you are in Sheffield, I know that the Sorby Natural history soc who are working towards a butterfly atlas and would be very grateful for any butterfly records, irrespective of common or more unusual species. Their website is
