2013 Butterfly season
The August Bank Holiday was good for butterfly sightings as I saw a couple of rare species: Comma
and Small Skipper - photos and details have now been added to the site.
Another farm, located in Northern Ireland will soon be featured on this website.

and listings of recommended books and links.
The main section of the site contains photos, distribution maps and general details of all the species found in Ireland.
This new section details some prime locations in Ireland where a large and varied number of butterfly species can be found.
