Nettle-tree Butterfly

 

 

Travelling from 4-17 July 2019, this two-week trip focussed on the butterflies of Sardinia and Corsica, including species such as Nettle-tree Butterfly and, even more so, the dozen or so endemic species, top of the list the dramatic Corsican Swallowtail. Effort was also made to see the more notable birds of the two islands, including Eleonora's Falcon, Marmora's Warbler and the two endemics, Corsican Nuthatch and Corsican Finch.

Part Two. Return to the Golan Heights.
Written by Jos   

Eastern Brown Argus

 

Following my earlier trip for Lebanese Festoons and other early season species in April, this short visit from 8-10 June was very much a follow-up, concentrating only on the uplands of the Golan Heights and Mount Meron areas and targeting the many mid-summer species that inhabit these highland regions. Abundant butterflies, including Ascentria's Fritillary, Little Tiger Blue and both Tawny and Lebanese Silverline.

Levantine Silverline

 

Travelling from 20-29 April and 8-10 June, this two-part trip was designed to sample an assortment of the spring butterflies that exist across this diverse territory, Lebanese Festoon and False Apollo among them, then to return later in the year to concentrate on the mountains of the north, home to many species not possible earlier in the season, including the newly discovered Ascentria's Fritillary and Levantine Silverline.
