Monarchs tagged before leaving town

It took 30 minutes for Kye to catch the first butterfly, number 250. His brother Aaron caught the next two, number 251 and 252 soon after.

One of the 46 Monarch butterflies netted, tagged and re-leased for their migration south. Close to 100 people were present to observe the tagging process.

Rachel took an opportunity to pose in the Monarch chair, courtesy of Sandra Walton-Ball, at the 7th Annual Monarch Tagging Event held at the Newcastle Lakeshore.
