Garden Butterfly Survey summary results for Year:

This page shows live results from the Garden Butterfly Survey. The first table shows the levels of participation, while the second shows how frequently different species have been seen and the earliest and latest sightings of them from the Garden Butterfly Survey (for the selected year). Species only appear in the results table if there has been at least one sighting in the selected year. If you are logged in then your own GBS results will also appear in the tables below.
