This first ever book on the butterflies of the West Midlands includes detailed accounts of all 41 species regularly recorded in Birmingham & the Black Country, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire and Worcestershire.

This major new title has been produced by members of the West Midlands branch of the national charity Butterfly Conservation, which is working to protect Britain's butterflies and moths.

For each species there are photographs of the four life stages – egg, larva, pupa and adult – and guidance on identification. Distribution maps show where each butterfly may be seen, and there is helpful information on suitable habitat and when to look for each species.

Additional chapters on butterfly walks, how to photograph butterflies and tips on suitable plants to attract them to your garden are included. A section detailing 25 butterfly walks in the region is also included plus tips on suitable plants to attract butterflies to your garden.

All proceeds from the sale of this book will help conserve butterflies and moths in the West Midlands. A 'must have' book for all lovers of butterflies.
