Branch Regional Action Plan

A Regional Action Plan summarises existing knowledge of the distribution, status and ecology of high and medium priority butterflies and moths in Eastern Scotland, and outlines actions and targets for their conservation.

The prime purpose of the Plan is to guide the activities of Butterfly Conservation's regional Branch for the East of Scotland. However, we hope that it will also be of use to others, particularly those preparing Local Biodiversity Action Plans (LBAPs), and to those involved in land management.

The revised 2013 Regional Action Plan can be viewed by clicking on the image to the right.  There are several supporting papers which can be found through the links below.

Maps and fact sheets

The table below shows the East Scotland Branch priority species. Butterfly Conservation's UK web site has butterfly and moth conservation reports and species fact sheets which you are encouraged to look at.  The table below has Map links that show recent and historical record locations for these species. The Map link will open a window with markers for locations where this species has been found. Recent records (since 2006) are shown with green markers, those seen last between 2000 and 2005 are shown in blue and those not seen this century in red.
