Eager anticipation – can the large blue top last year’s stellar performance?

We are now just a few weeks away from the start of this year’s large blue flight season at Collard. Right now the caterpillar larvae will be finishing their last and vast feast of ant grubs having gown 100 times in size over the winter! Very shortly they will be pupating underground in readiness for their brief spell in (what we hope will be!) the sun. Things have been good so far, so fingers crossed.

  1. I miised them last year by beibngf about two days late! It is a long way to drive from London so I need a bit of guidance. At present what is the best prognosis for emergence at Collard Hill this year?

    • Hi Bruce,

      The best time to come would be between the 18th-25th of June. If you could make it on a day that was sunny and there wasn’t too much wind then there would be a really, really good chance of you seeing it. Please keep checking the blog around that time for more updates on Collard Hill and the Large Blue.
