"Thank you" to all those who helped to collect Lincolnshire Echo vouchers in the run up to Christmas.
Species to look out for
Welcome to the Lincolnshire Branch of Butterfly Conservation.
Lincolnshire is the 2nd largest county, extending from the Humber to the Wash and has a suprisingly large and diverse range of butterflies and moths, although several are just hanging on in isolated colonies and habitat. The central Lincolnshire woodlands harbour the White Admiral and Brown Hairstreak butterflies at the far Northerly limit of their range; while the desolate Crowle Waste in the extreme North West corner has the Large Heath butterfly at its most South Easterly limit. The East coast has the only national colony of the Marsh moth.
If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Lincolnshire branch.
Butterfly Conservation Chief executive Dr Martin Warren gives his reaction to government’s proposed Pollinator Strategy.
Have you seen the harbinger of spring yet?
March sees the welcome return of life and colour to our gardens following the long, cold and this year, very wet winter.

Please send any Lincolnshire butterfly and moth sightings for viewing here to Lawrie Poole e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
Our County Recorder, Allan Binding, logged over 35,000 records last year! Obviously we cannot cover such numbers. 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 anyway! We look forward to hearing from you.
