The main focus of the trip is to look for Small Coppers, but they can be unpredictable with numbers varying each year. This can be due to overgrazing of the main food plant, Sheep’s Sorrel, or dry weather. However, from recent transect reports the end of May should hopefully be a good time to see them along with a range of commoner species.
