About this book

Our unique fascination with butterflies has been a gloriously British pastime since the early 18th century, through the Victorian butterfly mania of the 1890s and two World Wars, and is now the wonderful pastime it has become today. This is a wonderful celebration of great British butterflies, whether you are tracking the elusive Green Hairstreak, Painted Lady and Purple Emperor in the wild or identifying the more common Small Tortoiseshell, Orange Tip and Chalkhill Blue from the comfort of your garden chair. This fascinating guide to the British butterfly will delight both beginners and enthusiasts alike, with practical tips on all aspects of attracting, tracking and identifying butterflies and how to protect these beautiful creatures for future generations.
