Butterfly surveying techniques workshop by Nick Bowles of Butterfly Conservation.


Accurate records can make an enormous difference to efforts to conserve wildlife, locally and nationally. It helps land managers to know both which species are breeding on any patch, and how their management affects numbers. The aim of the courses is to increase both the accuracy and frequency of butterfly and moth recording in the Upper Thames Region. Attendees will be expected to describe how they will use their new knowledge in the three counties. Plus, extra knowledge boosts the enjoyment of any observation, even in your own garden.

This course is offered free to us by Butterfly Conservation but we are expected, following the course, to take a small patch to record for butterflies and moths several times a year. 

(Suggested donations of £8 for those who can afford it to cover various costs)

Please email if you would like to attend and can commit to occasional butterfly recording. We need 15 people to run this course
