From Ashley Whitlock:
I'm trying to get Hampshire the Purplest county in England, and with your help I could achieve this.
With such great records coming in thick and fast for the Purple Emperor I thought I could put my coordinators hat on and appeal to anyone willing to make an effort this weekend or the first weekend in August to the following sites as these have not had any records now for several years, and there is about (2) weeks flying time left now before they have burnt themselves out. The following sites are : Wokefield Common SU676651, Wellington Country Park SU714633, Queen Elizabeth Country Park SU729204, Crab Wood SU430295, Hen Wood SU664471, Ashford Hill SU727258, New Forest SU Anywhere! possibly along the A337 Road, Oakhanger SU780352, Squabb Wood SU333216, Stockbridge Down SU383344, Rogate SU805230, Butterwood SU716520, Blackwood SU536428, Harewood Forest SU403428, Church Crookham SU811522. If thats not enough to be getting on with then theres always Weston Common, Coxmoor Wood, Coombe Wood, Baddersley Common, Emer Bog, just to name but a few!
Obviously this will only appeal to Hampshire readers, but if there are any recorders willing to hop across their respective borders for Queen and country I would be grateful!
