A New Year’s Day egg hunt at Otmoor was a great success, with 18 people turning up to help tag the position of 41 rare brown hairstreak butterfly eggs.

The annual event was organised by Butterfly Conservation Upper Thames Branch.

As the eggs hatch and develop, each one will be closely monitored to gain a better understanding of the various pressures facing a brown hairstreak caterpillar.
