Our County Recorder, Allan Binding, logged some 15,000 records last year! Obviously we cannot cover such numbers here. So, we are particularly interested in first sightings, unusual sightings, in fact anything newsworthy and which you think others would be interested to know about. If in doubt, send it anyway! We look forward to hearing from you.
Chambers Farm Wood - Butterfly Garden
Lincolnshire Branch of Butterfly Conservation manages the Butterfly Garden with the kind permission and support of the Forestry Commission.

We intend the 'Lincolnshire Gallery' to feature an aspect of Lincolnshire's butterflies or moths using 20, or so, photos taken within the County by our Members. Every few weeks a new subject will be announced here! The first Gallery is: 'The Hairstreaks of Lincolnshire'
