We welcome records of butterfly sightings
from anyone at any time; the minimum requirements for a record are:
We also need your name, address and
Always make sure of the species; get a good
view of the butterfly, preferably settling, before noting it down.
Give a 4 or 6 figure grid reference of the
location, if you can; if not then give a clear description of where you saw it,
such as a street name, pub or other identifiable landmark, as well as the
nearest town or village. A town name alone is not sufficient as; "Bristol" for
example, could refer to many different 1 km grid squares.
If the species is rare, or appears to be
unusual, describe as much as you possibly can about the appearance of the
butterfly and where you saw it, how it behaved, how you identified it, and if
at all possible get a photograph.
