Name: Green Hairstreak Butterfly
Date: 2nd April 2017
Place: Cannock Chase
Weather: Cloudy with breaks of sunshine
Cannock Chase is brilliant for green hairstreak butterflies. We set out hoping to see a chrysalis of a green hairstreak as although some butterflies had emerged in the south, we wondered if it was still a little early for them further up north. But a glimmer of metallic green confirmed that they were on the wing here too. We saw 3 in total which was a very welcome surprise!
