Introduction

 

Silver-washed Fritillary

 
Mid summer is often a time when many birdwatchers turn their attentions to other forms of wildlife, notably butterflies, dragonflies and moths. Our aim on this exciting tour is to enjoy a wide range of these fascinating insects, some of them in very specialised habitats, and to connect with as many of the speciality species as possible. We are joined exclusively on this tour by entomologist and butterfly expert Adrian Riley, who will be leading, assisted by Ashley Saunders. Adrian has a huge amount of field experience in finding, identifying and photographing insects with and among his various publications is the latest ‘British and Irish Butterflies’ guide. We will also be incorporating a bit of birding into this tour particularly when we visit sites such as Cley, Titchwell and Holkham for insects, so it offers a broad natural history interest. Small Red Damselfly, Scarce Emerald Damselfly, Black Darter, Keeled Skimmer, Silver-washed Fritillary, White Admiral and Dark-Green Fritillary are all possible. Good weather though, is paramount for success with insects and the flight periods can vary tremendously depending on the climate in any given year. Expect around 25 species of butterflies, 17 species of dragonflies and up to 100 species of birds.
