Butterfly Records Arising from Worcestershire Wildlife Trust Publicity and Phone-ins 1999

Compiled by Harry Green

WWT received a lot of records of Orange Tips and some for Brimstones in response to public appeals and Richard Southwell's article in Worcestershire Record No. 6. Hopefully this has helped to make Worcestershire one of the best-covered counties for the Millennium Butterfly Atlas now in preparation.

I has a great time (!) sorting through all the messages and allocating the observations to (I hope) the correct tetrad by referring to 1:25,000 maps and street maps. County coverage was patchy. Why did so many people phone from Malvern and Ledbury? The Malvern Gazette must have given cracking good publicity. and we ended up with very good coverage of the Malvern squares.

I thought readers might be interested to see the result of the public response. The following list is sorted into tetrad order indicated by the four-figure grid reference to SW corner.. All should be prefixed "SO" apart from the "SP" records are at the end of the list - I like the one from Birmingham Airport!

OT stands for Orange Tip, the other abbreviations are self-explanatory. Dates are day/month.
