A final find, and what lies ahead...

2013 has been all about Moths and Butterflies.So many new species seen in what was a good recovery year for them. The year held one final highlight. Whilst out for a walk recently, I managed to find a Purple Hairstreak egg. This was especially pleasing, not only because they are tiny and tricky to find ( especially with eyes that require increasing distance to see small things ! ) but it was at a site I have yet to see any adults, so hopefully I will have a new tree and colony to study.
I hope you have enjoyed the variety on the blog this year. The intention is to get more into Pan Listing and Bio Blitzing in 2014, with a bit of friendly rivalry from another nature botherer down the road,Shenstone Birder. Happy New Year


  1. That Purple Hairstreak egg was a great find Mark. I'm looking forward to 2014 with a renewed optimism...let's see what is out there!

  2. Cheers mate, absolutely, looking forward to seeing what we can uncover !

  3. As with Jason I also wish you Good Luck with your 'Bio Blitz' Mark and a Happy New Year!

    PS: The Purple Hairstreak egg was a great find...well done Mark!
