The Donegal butterfly survey has been in progress since 1998 and has confirmed 24 resident species and two regular migrants with one rare migrant (the clouded yellow). In 2006 we are particularly interested in reports, pictures or comments on butterflies in or around Inishowen as the peninsula has only 17 confirmed species so far.
With your help we can increase our knowledge on these beautiful species. We're especially interested in sightings or reports of the following butterfly species
