British Butterflies

NEW! Learn about some of Britain's butterflies with our new British butterflies guide and spotter poster! They are full of wonderful photos and interestng facts that will help with butterfly identification and hopefully turn children into butterfly experts along the way!

These pages are so full of photos that some of the downloads are big and we've had to split the guide into sections. Apologies for the extra time it will take to download and print them separately - but we hope you think the guide will be worth it.
