The 'Lincolnshire Gallery' features an aspect of Lincolnshire's butterflies or moths using photos taken within the County by our Members. The Gallery will be changed every couple of months or so. The current Gallery is: '2015 Spring Sightings'.There are some great photos; all taken this Spring in Lincolnshire. Enjoy!

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.

Work at Southrey Wood is general woodland management, and the upkeep of the rides and footpaths. Your help would be much appreciated! Southrey is an important BC Reserve owned by the Forestry Commission.
