What a superb book! . Everything you need to know and more. The detail in the eggs and lava is fascinating. I see some macro photography coming up!

Butterflies (and moths) have been declining for decades ... and you can't move in the opposite direction without coming to a complete stop first :)

Shocking, our Government has signed up to the Convention on Biological Diversity and slashes funding for the one agency implementing it

There are spiralling costs once you go over 400 pages - so we had to keep to that. There were at least another 25 pages that didn't make the cut ... and detailed distribution maps (which, in some cases, will get out of date quite quickly).

It's a Comma that will hibernate over the winter. Just put it somewhere safe (such as a cool outhouse) and hope that it recovers.
