Butterfly Atlas

We are currently sharing information with the Lancashire & Cheshire Fauna Society in support of a Lancashire and North Merseyside Atlas of butterflies in collaboration with Butterfly Conservation. As a result we are particularly keen to get records of any butterflies or day flying moths that may not have already been sent in for inclusion in the mapping and possibly the further analysis of the records (for local context, trends and species accounts). Records will be verified before use by a local expert and/or member of the Lancashire Moth Group.

These types of projects often lack coverage for common species. All records are useful!
