The table below lists the earliest sightings of resident and regular migrant butterfly species that occured in Warwickshire in 2019.
This data is gathered as each year progresses to provide up-to-date information about butterfly emergence. The data is based on information submitted via our online recording form and is not reviewed retrospectively to include sightings information from other sources.
The list below is in order of reported sighting date, with the latest species on the wing at the top of the list.
**First sighting dates are based on records submitted online. Note that these dates are not updated retrospectively to include records submitted to the branch recorder in other forms. If a species is missing, this is either due to records not being submitted online or because the species was not recorded in our region during that year.
