Butterfly Conservation, Zoom Talk
Alan Dawson from the Norfolk Butterfly Conservation Trust will give a highly illustrated introduction to what butterflies you are likely to see in Norfolk gardens over the course of a year and what they need at the various stages of their life-cycles. He will also talk about which butterflies are doing well in Norfolk, which are doing badly and how to distinguish between some of the more difficult to identify species.
Alan says “My role on the committee of the Norfolk Branch of Butterfly Conservation is Transect Coordinator. Transects are set routes, mainly on managed land, that are walked weekly from April to September, with the butterflies encountered being counted. We have about 60 of these in Norfolk and they feed in to a national scheme that helps keep track of British butterfly numbers as well as what is happening in Norfolk. One of the things I do is to analyse the results from the 50,000 or so butterflies that are counted in Norfolk in a year.”
