Yorkshire Branch of Butterfly Conservation

I've put a new link up to the Yorkshire Branch of Butterfly Conservation under Yorkshire Butterflies.This is a great site run by Lee and Jax Westmorland from Scarbrough its full of very usefull information and a very good sightings page.
Founded in 1981, the Yorkshire Branch of Butterfly Conservation is one of the largest geographically as the county of Yorkshire measures approximately 150km north to south and 170km east to west!
From its humble beginnings with eighteen members, the branch has grown steadily to more than five hundred members today.
The branch works closely with the Yorkshire Naturalists' Union and promotes the jointly administered but independent recording scheme known as ButterflyNet Yorkshire, with a co-ordinator in each of Yorkshire's five vice counties and species co-ordinators for the county as a whole.
The branch magazine Argus is published regularly and details of both it and our other publications can be found on this site.
