Cumbria is home to over 40 butterfly species, including some of Britain’s most scarce species.

Join local lepidopterist and Chairman of Butterfly Conservation Cumbria, Chris Winnick, for this one-and-a-half-hour webinar on butterflies of the Lake District.

The webinar will cover both the rare and common species that can be found there. This includes Britain’s most endangered species, the High Brown Fritillary, and the second most endangered species, the Pearl-bordered Fritillary.

It is also home to following rare and threatened butterflies: Dark Green Fritillary, Dingy Skipper, Duke of Burgundy, Grayling, Large Heath, Marsh Frtillary, Mountain Ringlet, Northern Brown Argus, Small Blue, Small Heath, Wall Brown and White-letter Hairstreak.

Join us as Chris shares his endless knowledge and expertise on the Lake District’s species and where best to spot them.

The session will include the opportunity to ask questions to Chris, including questions on the conservation work taking place.

It will take place on Wednesday, June 9th, 7pm to 8.30pm.
