Northants Sightings 2020

Updated guidance for butterfly and moth recorders relating to Coronavirus Covid-19
14th May 2020
Following the Prime Minister’s address on 10th May, and subsequent official guidance, there have been significant changes to the restrictions brought in to reduce the spread of coronavirus. However, there is also now divergence between the UK nations on restrictions relating to outdoor activities. In England, although the key message is to stay at home as much as possible, the revised measures now allow people to spend leisure time outdoors (rather than just exercising once a day) and to travel to outdoor locations within England, provided that social distancing rules are followed. People in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland must follow the specific rules in those parts of the UK.
As a result, in England only, it is now possible for butterfly and moth recording to resume for people who are not shielding or self-isolating. Recorders must, at all times, continue to observe social distancing guidelines, including that you cannot record in groups of more than two (excluding members of your own household) and ensuring that you remain at least 2 metres away from anyone outside your household. If you have coronavirus symptoms, or if you or any of your household are self-isolating, you should stay at home.
