Sir David Attenborough warns that butterfly populations may suffer this year because of recent wet weather.

Butterflies in trouble:

  • Painted lady: Found on every continent except South America, these strong flyers are capable of long-distance migrations such as from north Africa to the UK
  • Common blue butterfly: Males have violet-blue upper wings, while females that inhabit the northern or western parts of the UK tend to be bluer than those in the south
  • Small tortoiseshell: One of our most familiar butterflies has experienced a rapid decline in the south
  • Brimstone butterfly: Males have yellow upper-wings while females are pale yellow-green, almost white in flight
