Join us for a morning walk around the Toton Fields Local NR and Toton Sidings for an approx. 2 to 3 hour walk. This area is full of wildflowers that attract a wide range of butterflies including Marbled White.
Species to look out for
Welcome to the East Midlands Branch of Butterfly Conservation
The East Midlands Branch covers the counties of Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire & Rutland and lowland Derbyshire.
If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the East Midlands branch.
Join us for a trip to Aston Rowant searching for Silver-spotted Skippers, Chalkhill Blue and Brown Argus.
The target species is the Wall Brown but there could also be Dark Green Fritillary and the Brown Argus (Peak District Race) dependant on how advanced the butterfly season is.
Richard Rogers to be new butterfly recorder for Nottinghamshire
Sir David Attenborough is calling on the public to become back garden wildlife detectives this summer.
Nature lovers are being asked to check the woods for Lobsters in a bid to help conservationists monitor moth distribution in the UK’s increasingly threatened woodlands and forests.
One of the UK’s rarest moths – spotted only a handful of times since its discovery in the 19th century - has been seen in Easter Ross 15 times in five weeks.
