Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IN our gar­den this July and Au­gust, we had a big hatch of red ad­mi­ral but­ter­flies, sil­ver-washed frit­il­lar­ies and some painted ladies and com­mas, but no tor­toise­shells and very few pea­cocks. Now, with fair weather and many flow­er­ing se­dums that would usu­ally be cov­ered in pea­cocks, red admirals and tor­toise­shells, we have only the odd white plus a huge quan­tity of bum­ble­bees. Has any­one else no­ticed an ab­sence of many but­ter­fly species this sum­mer? The Editor Replies: Could it be the weather? (page 33) Jonathan Reeves, Rad­nor­shire
