Branch Butterfly Recording
Butterfly records should be sent in as soon as possible, so that we can update our database. Every record counts, even the more common species as they can be valuable indicators of change. The preferred method is by sending in the Butterfly Casual Record Sheet. However, if you have only recorded one or two butterflies they can be submitted directly from this page or, if you
don't have access to Microsoft Excel for
the spreadsheet using a document which can be emailed or posted.
Getting involved in Butterfly Surveys is particularly valuable. Please take a look at the Surveys page on this site.
If possible, please include information about:
- the species
- numbers seen
- stage (eg adult, egg, caterpillar, pupa)
- description of site or locality, if possible using Ordnance Survey map reference
- description of habitat type
- your name, email and postal address.
