Species to look out for
Welcome to the West Midlands Branch of Butterfly Conservation.
The West Midlands branch covers Birmingham, the Black Country and the counties of Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire and Worcestershire. If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the West Midlands branch.

The West Midlands Branch of Butterfly Conservation have published a new guidebook to Mortimer Forest - a beautiful woodland which straddles the Shropshire and Herefordshire border and is home to butterflies like the rare Wood White.
