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.

Have you seen the harbinger of spring yet?
March sees the welcome return of life and colour to our gardens following the long, cold and this year, very wet winter.
Butterfly Conservation is deeply saddened to learn of the death of Vincent Weir, who was a Vice President and one of the charity’s biggest donors.

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.
