About this book

In this first ever book on the butterflies of the West Midlands detailed accounts of all 41 species regularly recorded in Birmingham & the Black Country, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire and Worcestershire are included, with distribution maps, 25 butterfly walks, gardening tips and a section on how to photograph butterflies.

This major new title has been produced by members of the West Midlands branch of the national charity Butterfly Conservation, which is working to protect Britain's butterflies and moths. Butterflies of the West Midlands will appeal to butterfly enthusiasts of all ages and experience from complete beginners to those who are already keen butterfly watchers or photographers.

For each species there are photographs of the four life stages – egg, larva, pupa and adult – and guidance on identification. Distribution maps show where each butterfly may be seen, and there is helpful information on suitable habitat and when to look for each species.

Additional chapters on butterfly walks, how to photograph butterflies and tips on suitable plants to attract them to your garden are included. All publisher's proceeds from the sale of Butterflies of the West Midlands will help conserve butterflies and moths in the West Midlands. A 'must have' book for all lovers of butterflies.
