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.

Scottish peat bogs are to receive a boost with the launch of a ‘Bog Squad’ dedicated to saving these precious wildlife habitats. The Bog Squad was launched by Ms Aileen Campbell MSP, at Langlands Moss Local Nature Reserve, East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire on April 27th.
Eleven MSPs are helping to publicise the plight of Scotland's butterflies and moths by acting as 'Species Champions'.
Come along and beat those winter blues by helping us conserve the boggy habitat of rare animals and plants by clearing invasive conifers and damming old drainage ditches.
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 and maybe also some scrub removal.
Our annual meeting for all those involved or interested in recording butterflies and moths in Scotland. All welcome!
