Small Copper.

This is my fourth year of walking the same 1770 metres transect through ancient oak woodland and on Tuesday I recorded my first ever sighting of the Small Copper (Lycaena phlaeas) on this walk.

Their appearance can only be attributable to the continued hot, sunny weather. A bonus find that lifts my transect specie tally to 25.


  1. How wonderful for you to find this lovely butterfly Frank. Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. I wanted to thank you for participating in Nature Notes in 2018 and wish you a very Happy Holiday Season..Michelle
