Records and Recording - First Sightings 2010

The table below lists the earliest sightings of resident and regular migrant butterfly species known to occur in Warwickshire in 2010 as submitted on the Butterfly Conservation Warwickshire web site reporting page.

These first sightings are gathered as the butterfly season progresses so as to provide up-to-date information about species emergence. They are not reviewed retrospectively by reference to transect data or distribution records and therefore represent what we believed to be the first report of a species at the time rather than a comprehensive analysis of the actual first dates recorded in a particular year.

The butterfly species are listed in order of reported sighting date, with the latest species sighting at the top of the list.
You can also view all of our first sightings data for all butterfly species since 2007.
