Record low number of butterflies in England
Guardian - Normally ubiquitous butterflies such as the gatekeeper, comma and
small copper experienced their worst summers in the history of the
count, which is run by Butterfly Conservation and began in 2010.Scientists said the low number of butterflies is “a shock and a

England than the previous worst year for butterflies, 2012, which was unusually cold and wet.
