Wildlife on the Common
I am sure many of you have been enjoying some summer sun over the last few weeks. Butterflies can be seen fluttering around, however, this has been a poor year for butterflies. With the continuous change in weather, from sun to rain, the butterflies have struggled. Cold winter killed off pupae and I am sure many people have noticed the delay in many species emerging. Very few surveys have taken place this year due to the weather, those which have been done show a significant decline in overall butterflies being seen. Moths have also been in decline this year. Burnet moths used to be sighted regularly on the Common. This year not a single one has been recorded.
