The Norfolk Branch was formed 25 years ago and currently has nearly 450 members. The Branch Committee is elected by members at the annual general meeting held each October.
As a Branch we are involved with managing Catfield Fen Reserve for the Swallowtail Butterfly as well as other flora and fauna. Our members are active across the county, recording and monitoring as well as running indoor and outdoor events. In recent years we have been involved in the translocation and extensive monitoring of Silver-studded Blue colonies. We have a full programme of field trips each year which, together with some winter indoor meetings, are open to the public when we are delighted to welcome visitors. By becoming a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a Branch member, receiving twice-yearly Newsletters keeping you up-to-date on Branch news and events.
In 2002 we published The Millennium Atlas of Norfolk Butterflies which provides extensive information about the status of butterflies in the county. Our recorders have also contributed to the National Millennium Atlas and the recently published update. We encourage everyone to record sightings and to let our Recorder have details. Butterflies are an important indicator for bio-diversity and keeping up-to-date and year-by-year records is extremely important to us.
The main aim of the web-site is to help people find out where and when they might see certain species within Norfolk. Suggested sites can be found by first clicking on 'Species' in the left hand column and then selecting the particular butterfly - locations and flight times will then be shown. Where other species of possible interest can also be seen at a site these are mentioned.
If you would like further information on these species, or indeed any other Norfolk butterflies, please contact one of the committee via the link in the left-hand column.
