County Recorder Mike Easterbrook’s eagerly awaited book on the butterflies of Kent & South East London is nearing completion. Presenting data gathered over the period 2003-2019, this project is the culmination of several years of work and many thousands of records. Mike is being supported with his venture by fellow Branch Committee members Peter Kirby and Peter Riley.
To help with publication costs we are offering you the opportunity to sponsor a species. For a donation of £100 you will receive your name or a dedication alongside your chosen butterfly in the book. To pledge your sponsorship, please get in touch with Branch Treasurer, Trevor Manship @email.
For the many talented photographers out there, we’re also inviting submissions of photos of each species, taken in Kent, to feature in the book. We are looking for each stage of the life cycle, from egg to imago. If you have a great photo that you would be happy for us to use, please email it to Mike at @email for consideration as soon as possible. Photos must be in high resolution digital format.
As a reminder images of the 42 resident Kent butterfly species are shown below, along with several migrants that are also available for sponsorship.
Species that are available to sponsor are in colour and have a green tick in the bottom right corner
Species that have already been sponsored are greyed out and have a red cross in the bottom right corner
