This book documents, celebrates and shares the many successes the Warwickshire Branch of Butterfly Conservation has had in conserving our rarer butterflies over the past 25 years. It is a manual of techniques, tips and ideas that will help and hopefully inspire others to create and manage habitats and to conserve butterflies.
In addition, the book outlines the fieldcraft that is required to provide the best chance of finding adult butterflies and their immature stages, provides tips on how to identify the difficult species and suggests how to get the maximum enjoyment from your butterfly encounters.
"Between the covers of this book lies a wealth of practical information about the conservation of butterflies derived from many years of first-hand field experience, gained through trial and error and deliberate experimentation. Whilst long-term, well-financed, scientific studies play their role in butterfly conservation, the imminency of both the climate crisis and the biodiversity emergency suggest that we need to use every tool in the conservationist's toolbox. Both the content and the supremely accessible layout of this no-nonsense 'Warwickshire Approach', is a refreshing contribution to the conservation of our native butterfly species and provide one more tool for the conservationist to work with."
