Description:

Packed with information and photographs, this will be the go-to book on the state and status of butterflies from Bude to Land’s End.

The book maps the ebb and flow of butterfly populations in Cornwall, including national rarities, such as the Marsh Fritillary, Silver-studded Blue, Pearl-bordered Fritillary and Heath Fritillary, whose strongholds we must safeguard. Even the more familiar Small Tortoiseshell, in decline nationally as well as locally, calls for our help.

In its beautifully illustrated pages, you will find:

* a description of all 37 of Cornwall’s resident and regular migrant butterflies, including each species’ ecology, life cycle, population trends and geographical distribution

* 12 more species that are occasional visitors to Cornwall

* butterflies of the Isles of Scilly

* the best places to see butterflies in Cornwall

* what makes Cornwall’s environment unique

* how butterflies are recorded and conserved in Cornwall

This book has been produced by the Cornwall branch of Butterfly Conservation, the national charity that works to protect Britain’s butterflies and moths. A lifelong conservationist, HRH The Prince of Wales, Duke of Cornwall, provides a foreword. This book will appeal to butterfly enthusiasts of all ages and experience, and to anyone who lives in or visits Cornwall.

All proceeds from the sale of this book will help conserve butterflies and moths in Cornwall.
