Species to look out for
Welcome to the East Scotland branch of Butterfly Conservation.
We aim to provide information about the activities of our branch in the Scottish Borders; the Lothians, Falkirk, Clackmannanshire, Perth and Kinross, Fife, Angus, Banffshire and Aberdeenshire.
If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the East Scotland branch.
There are no events scheduled for the requested area. Field events are mostly held during the summer months and are arranged in the early spring.
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.
