   Just to let viewers know that we now have a volunteer to coordinate the sending of butterfly records to eButterfly.   We’ll let you know closer to the butterfly season, and when we have thought through how to organise it, and who is going to do what, just how it will work.   Just a few more weeks before butterflies re-appear!  Jeremy Tatum
