It is good to know that Matthew Lissimore is still taking some great bird photographs in Wyre. Here are some excellent shots taken in the forest this year.

Dark Green Fritillaries

It is good to know that Dark Green Fritillary butterflies are being recorded again this year in various parts of the forest. Their flight season is usually between the middle of June to the end of August. Thanks to Jon Cartwright who sent in these shots.
