Butterfly Recording

The majority of butterfly records* for Warwickshire, Coventry, Solihull and Sutton Coldfield come from casual observers and dedicated volunteers who submit their sightings via our online recording form. Anyone can submit their butterfly sightings. Garden observations as well as observations in the wider countryside are welcome, so long as the observations occur within our region. Other forms of recording include butterfly transect surveys, species timed counts and wider countryside surveys.

*All records submitted are processed and checked for errors by the website administrators before the data is submitted to Butterfly Conservation at the end of the season. Records awaiting verification will not be shown here until they have been verified.
