Butterfly Transect 2018

Caterpillar at White Park Bay

The National Trust manages 3 butterfly transect surveys on the North Coast at Portstewart, Giant’s Causeway and White Park Bay, plus a fourth started this year at Cushendun.

Volunteers and/or staff walk the same route once a week from April 1 to September 30 and count the butterflies they see.  These results are sent to Butterfly Conservation and become part of their nationwide butterfly monitoring scheme.
