Your butterfly sightings are important to us and the data are used nationally to inform Government policies and nature conservation work. To submit your butterfly sightings to the County Recorder for Cheshire and The Wirral (VC58) please use the attached spreadsheet (below). The Recorder receives over 30,000 records a year to check, validate and enter into the database. For this reason we're afraid that from 2020 we will no longer be able to take handwritten/paper records.
Instructions on how to use the spreadsheet, and where to send it to when completed, can be found on the first sheet.
The Cheshire Moths Facebook Group and RECORD LERC Moths Forum are both useful places to gain help with moth identification, share sightings and receive general tips and advice relating to moth recording.
