Butterfly Census Week

gang-shooting-myrina-silenus-at-shongweni 'Leppers' queueing up to photograph a Fig-Tree Blue at a BCW in Shongweni Nature Reserve near DurbanThe LepSoc Council, at its recent strategy planning meeting, decided that the Butterfly Census Weeks will undergo metamorphosis into an AutumnBASH and a SpringBASH. The first of this new series of events will take place in October this year. Unfortunately, we are a bit late to launch an AutumnBASH for this year as we are nearing the end of March already. These events will run for a full month, so that they are less weather dependent than their predecessor. They will have a component that will entail teams or individuals submitting as many photo records of butterflies and moths to the LepiMAP database at http://vmus.adu.org.za/. The exact details of the format will be announced later.

However we will continue to publish the BCW results as before.
