An annual survey from the National Trust found that volatile weather in 2019 led to an influx of migrant species. Warm weather and high winds in the early months of 2019 led to an influx of migrant butterflies, moths and dragonflies from the south and east, including many unusual birds and butterflies.
But Ben McCarthy, the head of nature conservation and restoration ecology at the National Trust, warned that the changing weather patterns are putting pressure on some native flora and fauna that could lead to some species becoming extinct.
