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.
