Bunny. Not great i'm affraid, though we really won't know the extent of how damaging this weather has been on them till next year when those that have just one brood hatch or or go through complete Metamorphosis.(This varies across the species).
Hopefully the results from the Big Butterfly count http://www.bigbutterflycount.org/ will aid in giving us a better idea of how down on numbers we are. You've still got till the end of this month to do some counts so get on it.
My monthly surveys from May started terribly as it struggled to provide the correct conditions in which to get an accurate survey done, with just one session providing a healthy numbers of varied species.
Meadow Browns and Ringlets seem to have enjoyed another good year, marbled whites seem to be having a reasonable year and Gatekeepers are in good numbers right now.
All three whites are now emerging as a second brood and seem in good numbers.
Of the commonly seen larger Butterflies, Peacocks are finally appearing in their numbers, and thankfully are gracing the Buddleia's after what appeared to be a poor show early on. Red Admirals this year aren't having such a great start, but as they are a tough butterfly, they can do well in poor weather.
Small Tortoiseshells really seem to be struggling this year, so few of these once common sightings are being reported.
Migrants like the clouded yellow and painted lady are having a quiet year from what i see of it.
Woodland species are fairing ok, but still nothing like ideal, so again, only time will tell.
Species that colonise only need a window of opportunity in which to find a mate so Common blues, Brown Argus, etc should be fine.
It's all not perfect for them, but they battle on. Just a shame to not see meadows of them bustling with life during the summer months, instead they just hide out under a leaf, or on a stalk. waiting, waiting, waiting..
