"Butterfly Conservation's new book, The State of British Butterflies, shows that not all news is bad news. The Adonis Blue, for example, seems to be exploding all over Dorset. The charity's reaction is to downgrade the butterfly's status to be a species of conservation concern. If we are supposed to be concerned about a specoes when it is doing well, one wonders what we are supposed to feel when it is doing badly."
