Butterflies of Britain and Ireland FSC Guide

£4.00 Inc. VAT

This Butterflies of Britain and Ireland Guide is published by the Field Studies Council

This fold-out guide features all 60 wild butterflies found in Britain and Ireland

It’s designed for speedy butterfly identification in the field, with beautiful colour life-size paintings of each butterfly by acclaimed artist Richard Lewington

The Guide shows both upper wings and under wings, so you can identify butterflies in flight and at rest

Similar looking butterflies are close to each other for easy comparison

The guide is plastic coated and designed to fit in a rucksack



As well as the illustrations, the reverse side of the Butterfly Guide includes concise identification notes for each species

This text covers the key characteristics to look out for, plus flight period, habitat and range. Also indicated are those species which now have legal protection in the UK

Even beginners should find 5-10 butterflies in a typical garden in the summer

But if you visit woodland, grassy meadows or limestone hills, you could find many more. From Comma to Clouded Yellow, from Painted Lady to Purple Emperor, how many butterfly species can you identify with the guide this year?
