Butterfly Park Visitor Numbers At All Time High


Below is a graph showing the number of visitors to the  park from  2002-2017.
  
3250 visitors was a substantial  increase this  year  due to  increasing general popularity  of the park (seven  Sundays  with over  100  visitors), the  very successful  Open Day (1,059  visitors)  and the increased number of  visiting groups (20  groups).


















Total butterfly record counts have been compiled over the period 2002 to 2017. This gives a  good picture of how the butterflies are faring at the Park. Unfortunately it was a mediocre to  poor 2017 season for most of our butterflies, except the Red Admiral and the Holly Blue  who have had their best year to date.

Thanks to all the volunteers who have helped in this success.
