Species to look out for

Welcome

AltPearl-bordered Fritillary by Peter Eeleshough a third of the UK in terms of land area, Scotland has less than one-tenth of the population, so ensuring our butterflies and moths are well-recorded can present quite a challenge to our volunteers and staff. Despite the seemingly unfavourable weather, our butterflies and moths are generally faring better in the uplands than in the intensively-farmed east.

We have enjoyed excellent long-term support from Scottish Natural Heritage for most of our activities in Scotland.
