New Butterfly Atlas
We are delighted to report that the Branch has published (2014) a new Atlas of the Butterflies of North East England. This updates the Atlas published by Dunn and Parrack in 1986 and reflects substantial changes since then. The Atlas was published as a volume of the Natural History Society of Northumbria's journal "Northumbrian Naturalist" and we are very grateful for their support and collaboration. We are also grateful to Northumbrian Water, Durham Wildlife Trust and Northumberland Wildlife Trust for financial support for this project. The Atlas was a collaborative project and we are grateful to the editors and the authors of individual species accounts and above all to the many people who submit records every year and thereby make such an exercise possible. Copies can be obtained for £ 6.60 including post and packaging and an order form can be downloaded from here.
