Species to look out for
Welcome to the Suffolk Branch of Butterfly Conservation.
If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Suffolk branch.
Events - If you want to attend an event please contact the leader. This is not a commitment but enables us to contact you if an event is cancelled. Full details on the Events page of the Branch website.
The Silver-washed Fritillary now seems firmly established in Suffolk. There have been sightings in at least six woods. See our sightings page for details.
Sir David Attenborough is calling on the public to become back garden wildlife detectives this summer.
Nature lovers are being asked to check the woods for Lobsters in a bid to help conservationists monitor moth distribution in the UK’s increasingly threatened woodlands and forests.
One of the UK’s rarest moths – spotted only a handful of times since its discovery in the 19th century - has been seen in Easter Ross 15 times in five weeks.

Can you spare some time?
Wall Survey - Work by the Environment Ageny is affecting one of the last sites for the Wall on the coast of Suffolk near Bawdsey. More people are needed to carry out a survey. Even half a day would be invaluable.
Events - Next year we would like to find some people who are happy to help at some of our events. You would not need to have any special knowledge but be happy to explain Butterfly Conservation and its aims.
Please go to our branch website for more details.
