Species to look out for
Welcome to the East Scotland branch of Butterfly Conservation.
We aim to provide information about the activities of our branch in the Scottish Borders; the Lothians, Falkirk, Clackmannanshire, Perth and Kinross, Fife, Angus, Banffshire and Aberdeenshire.
If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the East Scotland branch.
Our annual Members' Day is an informal chance to meet like-minded butterfly and moth enthusiasts and chat and hear about the wonderful highlights of the season.
Our annual spring Recorders Gathering is an informal meeting when we get together to look back on the recording highlights of the previous year, and discuss and plan surveys and monitoring for the coming one.
