Butterflies of South West Scotland an Atlas of their Distribution 2006

by Keith Futter, Richard Sutcliffe, David Welham, Anne Welham, A. John Rostron, Jessie MacKay, Neil Gregory, Jim McCleary, T. Norman Tait, Jim Black and Paul Kirkland
ISBN 1 902831 95 0

This beautiful 160-page hardback book is available for only 5.00 plus 2.00 P&P from the branch committee.

Cheques should be made payable to Butterfly Conservation and sent to branch Treasurer: Mrs G Rae, 11 Miller Street, Hamilton, Lanarkshire, ML3 7EW.

This book summarises the results of the survey of butterflies in our branch area undertaken during 1995-2004.

There are colour maps for each of the 32 species showing distribution and abundance.

The book is however more than a series of maps. It is beautifully illustrated with over 150 colour photographs showing all the butterflies recorded in our branch area. Some of the images are of butterflies in flight thanks to the photographic skill of Norman Tait. The book is worth getting just to see these, especially the images of the Dark Green Fritillary and Grayling in flight.

The introduction includes a comprehensive history of our branch which will appeal to members who have just joined our branch and to members who have been with us for several years. The branch is now over 25 years old and one of the main reasons for producing the atlas was to celebrate what we have accomplished.

There is also a site guide in the book which describes many of the best places to see butterflies in our branch area. It is separated into the regions - Dumfries & Galloway, Ayrshire, Greater Glasgow, Dunbartonshire, Stirlingshire and Argyll & the Isles.

We hope you will enjoy the book which is hardback and 160 pages.
