Chequered skipper season is with us again

ONE of the wildlife specialities of the region is that the chequered skipper thrives in Lochaber and North Argyll, its only British location.

This pretty little chocolate- brown butterfly, no bigger than a thumbnail, has yellow chequered markings. Depending on the weather, the skippers fly from mid-May to the end of June. Their favoured larval food plant is purple moor grass, and they are often found where bog myrtle also grows in conjunction.
