British Butterflies are disappearing!

  Butterflies are the canary of our environment to a great  degree. National butterfly counts continue to indicate specific species in decline, particularly impacting on certain ones, like the Small Tortoiseshell and the Highbrown Fastillary (close to extinction?). Habitat loss, and habitat fragmentation, interrupt the balance on a delicate and complex food chain.

     In September, you can see up to 37 varieties of butterflies in Britain, still!
