I have been interested in butterflies for the last forty years, and have lived in Wiltshire since 1979, but only since regularly visiting one site - Blakehill Farm WWT reserve - from 2004, where I do a transect, have I come to realise how many species are in need of help, and how important is membership of this organisation.
I took over the editorship of the Bulletin from Michael Sammes in 2009 - please send me articles and photos about butterflies and moths - your Bulletin needs you!
I also help Michael with the Brown Hairstreak egg searches in Braydon Forest every winter, and try to find the adults in summer.
My other wildlife interests include birds (for even longer than butterflies) and dragonflies, and, since getting a Robinson trap in March this year, also moths. I also enjoy music, books and films.
