Hi Annette,

it turns out there are some spots in Ayrshire with good nos of butterflies after all!

Are you putting your dragon and damsel records into the British Dragonfly Society online recording system for their atlas?

Went to Bennane head on the 3rd so very close to you guys.
Saw common blues, ringlets, meadow browns and dark green fritillaries.

Have to laugh at your adder comment. Took my kids up Pinbain Burn last summer and half way through the outting thought about snake potential and told them to watch out for snakes incase they stood on one. BAD MOVE :? . They both went into panic mode demanding that I carried them (aged 4 and 6 years at that point). Eventually had to lie and tell them I was only joking and there were no snakes.

Dont worry my 46yr old knight in shining armour was last seen meekly looking through his bins from over the gate 100 yards :lol: :lol: :lol:
