11th July: A good season for butterflies on Lindisfarne

The warm weather of the last few weeks has produced a spectacular array of butterflies on Lindisfarne NNR.

Species such as ringlet, dark green fritillary and small heath have been especially abundant this year, but numbers of the white butterflies have been lower this summer so far. You can spot many of the Reserve's butterflies while walking the self-guided nature trail, which is included in our Reserve leaflet available at several points across the Reserve. You can also download a PDF here.
