The Butterflies of Rockingham Forest

The Butterflies of Rockingham Forest

Date: Thu, 16 Sep 2021, 19:30 - 20:30

Venue: Zoom

This lecture examines the butterfly population in Northamptonshire with special reference to Rockingham Forest. It traces the life cycles of species throughout the year, looking at the plants on which eggs are laid, their development as caterpillars and then their final emergence as adult butterflies. As well as familiar species the lecture examines the re-emergence of rarer examples such as the Purple Emperor, a stunning but elusive butterfly that lives mostly in the upper canopy of large trees
