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.

The coldest start to spring for half a century has led to many butterflies emerging weeks later than usual, Butterfly Conservation has revealed.
This small, moth-like butterfly is one of the first of our threatened species to emerge in the year.
You can help moths by asking your local MP to sign up to an early day motion which calls on the Government to take urgent action to save our dwindling moth populations.
