Highlights: Wet and windy weather with low sunshine levels caused problems for most butterfly species. The year ranked as the second worst in the 33-year series and the sorst since 1981. 12 species had their worst year, with continued declines for Small Tortoiseshells and some of our most threatened species, including several of the fritillaries. There was a noticeable absence of migrants after several good years. On the positive side it was good year for some of the Brons including Ringlet and Speckled Wood.
