In 1998, five local women spent an hour a week from April 22 to September 18 walking through Gobions Wood recording the butterflies they saw. Their work resulted in a detailed report which was submitted to the National Millennium Butterfly Atlas Survey.

A year later they did it all over again. Below are images of the butterflies they saw in both 1998 and 1999, and, below those, the reports containing the information gathered by the volunteers over the two years.
