Erratic weather 'harms wildlife'

UK wildlife is struggling to cope as erratic and unseasonal weather has taken its toll for a second consecutive year. Birds, mammals and particularly insects have all suffered from a cold, late spring, a wet summer with little sunshine and a long, dry autumn. Species under threat include puffins, marsh fritillary butterflies and lesser horseshoe bats. Another wet summer in 2009 could be a disaster for insects.
