Guide to British butterflies
The high quality butterfly net is constructed from soft Terylene material that will minimise damage to insect wings and stand up well to UV degradation. The wooden handle provides good grip and reach (length = 45cm). The net diameter is 30cm and depth is 40cm. The Guide to British Butterflies is an 8 page laminated fold out guide. Produced by the Field Studies Council, it features life size illustrations from original paintings by the renowned wildlife illustrator Richard Lewington. Over 60 common and rare species are illustrated, along with general information on biology and conservation. The bug box magnifying pot will allow you to study your butterfly before releasing it back into the wild.
