The East Scotland Branch Action Plan summarises existing knowledge of the distribution, status and ecology of high and medium priority butterflies and moths in Eastern Scotland, and outlines actions and targets for their conservation.
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.

A trip to our enclosure at Glencourse reservoir for Green Hairstreaks. They were last recorded here three years ago, and we want to see if they are still here.
Urban spaces can be surprisingly good homes for butterflies, with some species even being more common in towns than they are in the wider countryside. Join us on this free training workshop in Dundee to find out how to identify and record these beautiful butterflies which are on your doorstep.
As well as checking known sites, we will be looking for evidence of new Small Blue colonies on this coastal stretch as far as Burnmouth.
