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.
One of the West Midland’s rarest butterflies has been given a lifeline thanks to a new project to boost its numbers and reintroduce it to several woodlands in the region.
The West Midlands Branch of Butterfly Conservation have published a beautiful book covering all 40 species of butterfly found across Herefordshire, Birmingham and the Black Country, Shropshire, Staffordshire and Worcestershire - order your copy today!
