Please send any Lincolnshire butterfly and moth sightings for viewing here to Lawrie Poole e-mail: lgpoole@dircon.co.uk

Many thousands of butterfly & moth sightings are recorded each year in Lincolnshire! Obviously we cannot cover such numbers here. So, we are particularly interested in first sightings, unusual sightings, in fact anything newsworthy, and which you think others would be interested to know about. If in doubt, send it in anyway! We look forward to hearing from you.

Please Note: Any photo sent is giving the Branch permission to use it to promote Lepidoptery in all media forms -  eg. Website, Newsletter, Slideshow, Display etc.
