One of the UK’s rarest butterflies has recorded its best year for a decade thanks to 2014’s warm spring weather and work to restore its habitat, a study has revealed.
Species to look out for
The Cheshire & Peak District branch was established in 1985 with the aims of promoting the conservation of butterflies and moths, together with their habitats in Cheshire, Wirral, South Manchester and the Peak District.
It promotes its activities at local shows and conservation fairs, carries out research and recording work, arranges talks and presentations to interested bodies and is actively involved in supporting the work of other conservation groups.
If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Cheshire & Peak District branch.
A spectacular European butterfly has travelled to the UK and for the first time on record, survived the British winter, Butterfly Conservation can reveal.
Butterfly Conservation welcomes the Government’s National Pollinator Strategy. The newly published document is a clear steer from Government that the declines in bees and wild pollinators including butterflies and moths are being taken seriously.
The branch has been actively involved in numerous projects over the last few years. Find out more here.
