Scotland is an exciting place for butterfly-watching. The rapidly changing distribution of many species creates an enthralling environment for recorders and nature-lovers, while remote glens and islands undoubtedly hold undiscovered rarities.
Discovering Scotland’s Butterflies is for everyone who gets a buzz from seeing a butterfly, providing details of life cycles, habitats, ecology and distribution of the thirty plus species. Numerous anecdotes illustrate the pleasure to be gained from watching common butterflies or the thrill of discovering scarce ones.
The book also covers butterfly gardening, climate change, studying and conserving butterflies, and places to see them. Over 15 photographers have generously supplied superb images.
