Butterflies in towns and cities declining faster than their countryside counterparts
Species to look out for
Welcome to the Hertfordshire & Middlesex Branch of Butterfly Conservation.
The Hertfordshire & Middlesex Branch has over 950 members and covers the administrative county of Hertfordshire and the Watsonian Vice-county of Middlesex (VC21).
The London Boroughs included within the Branch area are Barnet, Brent, Camden, City of London, City of Westminster, Ealing, Enfield, Hackney, Hammersmith & Fulham, Haringey, Harrow, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Islington, Kensington & Chelsea, Richmond (north of the Thames) and Tower Hamlets.
If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Hertfordshire & Middlesex Branch.
Some of the UK's best-loved birds and butterflies could be wiped out as there is not enough habitat for them to cope with the effects of a warming climate.
World-renowned butterfly scientist Dr Martin Warren has been awarded with an OBE for services to the environment.
Have you seen a butterfly?
Please report all butterfly sightings to our Branch Organiser, Liz Goodyear: firstname.lastname@example.org. When sending in news from a site for the first time, a grid reference or post code would be appreciated.
