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.

Butterflies in Norfolk
There are thirty-nine species of butterfly found across Norfolk. These range from very widespread and common species, such as the Peacock and Large White, to species with extremely restricted distributions like the Swallowtail.
Based on the records from 2014, we have provided a list of the butterflies seen across Norfolk.
We have also produced a map and details of where to find these butterflies. This list is being reviewed and updated.
Moths in Norfolk
To date (2014) some 670 species of larger macro-moths and 1120 species of micro-moths have been recorded in Norfolk. These range from species whose range is virtually limited to the county, such as Small Dotted Footman to a range of migrant species which arrive from Europe from time to time to common moths which occur virtually everywhere.
Norfolk is lucky that it has an extremely active moth group called the Norfolk Moth Survey, distinct from Butterfly Conservation. The Norfolk Moth Survey has a website developed by the current county moth recorder for identification and recording of moths, widely considered to be one of the best in the United Kingdom. Butterfly Conservation Norfolk branch has a good working relationship with Norfolk Moth Survey (NMS) . . . read more click here
