Drive away the gloom of winter by joining us for a virtual butterfly year!

In this course we’ll go through each month covering what UK butterflies are on the wing, how to identify them, their preferred habitat and how to find them. From common butterflies that can be tricky, such as the common “whites”, though to rarer species that can need a little more identification skills.


We’ll be covering regular favourites like the Peacock, what it has in common with owls and how it can hiss like a snake, through to some really special species such as the stunning Purple Emperor and elusive White-letter Hairstreak. In all, we’ll cover all 59 British and Irish butterflies.


The course consists of 8 x weekly live zoom session comprised on a 45 minute presentation and 45 minutes of inter-active discussion.  All sessions will be recorded and links will be shared incase you miss one or wish to watch again.

The course will run over 8 weeks with evening sessions on: Tuesday 12th, 19th and 26th Jan, 2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd Feb and 2nd March 2021.
