This is a pioneering, original, site guide to Swiss Butterflies. Easily accessible butterfly sites across Switzerland are described. The full range of habitat is visited including Woodland, Wetland, Rocky Steppe, Mountain and High Mountain. Nectar plants are identified where possible. Butterfly subspecies found in specific locations are highlighted. Locations for species not covered in the main sites, are indicated in additional sites to visit. Each page has a unique selection of photographs. All photographs are identified with the butterfly, date and place. Photograph locations are given according to the River Valley and Canton.
"This is a companion guide to the author's Siviss Butterflies and follows the same 36-page A4 format, but in this booklet the focus is to describe in detail 15 easily accessible valleys and passes together with the butterflies they support, total of 150 species are illustrated in the booklet and as with Swiss Butterflies, the majority are of good quality and taken by the author. [...] A map of Switzerland is included [...] but precise locations are not shown. [...] If you are [...] planning a holiday in Switzerland and were wondering where you might get to see some of the country's amazing butterfly fauna then this inexpensive booklet is for you. However, I'd buy it in advance together with a good map to plot the locations and plan your itinerary."
