Species to look out for
Although 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.
A rare and unusual moth that disguises itself as a bee has been unexpectedly discovered at a Lanarkshire nature reserve, Butterfly Conservation Scotland has confirmed.
An overlooked yet beautiful butterfly has been seen in much greater numbers than normal in Scotland this year...
One of the UK’s most threatened butterflies has seen a big increase in numbers at the Mabie Forest near Dumfries in South West Scotland.
We are continuing our work here with the fantastic Friends of Langlands Moss to help keep the bog nice and wet for rare species. The work will involve ditch blocking
Our annual Members' Day, an informal chance to meet like-minded butterfly and moth enthusiasts and chat and hear about the wonderful highlights of the season. Details will be published nearer the time.
Our annual meeting for all those involved or interested in recording butterflies and moths in Scotland. All welcome!
