UK butterflies benefit from woodland management

'' Large numbers of possibly immigrant red admirals have been seen around the Norfolk coast in UK. However, we won’t know the season we’re having until we see data from the annual scientific survey and the Big Butterfly Count, which is now under way and will hopefully beat last year’s incredible statistic: 111,628 citizen scientists took part.

The broad picture in Britain is that “common” butterflies are disappearing while rarer “habitat specialists” are rallying because of targeted conservation work.

The heath fritillary’s appearance at Victory Wood in east Kent this summer is a stunning example of how we are saving rare species. Woodland was felled and ploughed up here during the 1950s and the place earmarked for landfill.

The land was bought by the Woodland Trust in 2004. Planting, natural regeneration and wide rides connected the “new” wood to surviving fragments of ancient woodland. ''

The Guardian  redacted the original article. It was about heath fritillary, not red amiral.
