Welcome to Butterfly Conservation in Somerset and Bristol

All the Moor Butterflies

Simon's summary report of surveys of target species in 2017 is available to read and download here



The Branch 'Get-Together' is on Sunday 18 February, 2 pm to 5-ish.

The 'Get-Together' is a chance to show off your photos of butterflies and moths from here at home and wherever you may have been on holiday. It usually includes tales of the pursuit of rare or elusive species as well as some spectacular exotics.

We have a leisurely break for tea and an impressive variety of savoury snacks and splendid cakes with plenty of time to eat one's fill, chat to old friends and make new ones. 

If you plan to come and bring pictures or video please let Dave Ayling know so that he can plan the afternoon's programme 


Little Breach work parties - can you help?

Little Breach is a BC reserve just over the county border in Devon but no distance from Taunton and Wellington. Devon Branch is running two work parties there early in the New Year and would be very grateful for help.
