🦋As my blog celebrated its 10-year anniversary in 2019 I thought it would be a good time to completely review and reminisce on my many trips across Europe & North America. While doing so and looking over numerous unpublished images I found that one area, in particular, required closer inspection.

My trips to the US, Canada, Spain, France, Croatia, Hungary, and other European destinations over this period have primarily concentrated on birding and this was the area that always took priority. Notwithstanding I've photographed and observed many Butterflies and Odanata over this period and frankly I've been found wanting when it comes to logging and identifying these amazing insects.

After a complete review, I have now produced a personal database of my Butterfly listings and can also publish some of the images that never quite made it onto the original blog posts. As I post I'm still in the process of identifying many of my images but below is my current database.

Naturally, if I'm lucky enough to identify new species already in my files, or indeed additions to my life-list these too will be updated on the database. LAST UPDATED: October 9th 2021

LATEST ADDITIONS FOR 2021: Chequered Skipper, Northern Brown Argus, Grayling, Scotch Argus and Monarch.
