A spectacular European butterfly has travelled to the UK and for the first time on record, survived the British winter, Butterfly Conservation can reveal.
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.
There are no events scheduled for the requested area. Field events are mostly held during the summer months and are arranged in the early spring.
Butterfly Conservation welcomes the Government’s National Pollinator Strategy. The newly published document is a clear steer from Government that the declines in bees and wild pollinators including butterflies and moths are being taken seriously.
The UK’s scariest moth caused pandemonium in a suburban street after appearing unexpectedly in a back garden, just days before Halloween.

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.
