Have you ever seen a Wood White butterfly?

Did you know that nearly half of all the UKโ€™s Wood White sites are found within the West Midlands?

Sadly its numbers are dropping and in the last 40 years, this butterfly has fallen in abundance by 88% across the UK.

We need volunteers to help @butterflyconservationwestmidlands create and improve habitat for this butterfly and work parties to do...

How are you feeling?

Today is #BlueMonday, apparently the most depressing day of the year. Let us brighten up your day with a beautiful Blue Morpho Butterfly.

This should cheer you up too - blue butterflies are considered wish-granters in some cultures. Spotting a blue butterfly means that a wish one makes or made will come true.

Remember we asked you to vote to save the Wood White butterfly?

Thanks to your amazing support we got to the finals of the Aviva Community Awards with the most votes in our category. The bad news is that the judges didn't pick our conservation project as a winner.

This has left us short of funds and more worried than ever about the future of the Wood White. Can you help with a donation?...

Do you know of any superstitions about wildlife?

There are various superstitions about butterflies and generally they are an indication of good luck. Some believe that you will have good luck throughout the year if the first butterfly you see is white. Others say that if the first butterfly you spot is yellow, then the weather will be sunny. Additionally, it is lucky to see three butterflies...

The first UK Brimstone of 2017 has been reported. It was seen in Sussex yesterday (10 January).

Gonepteryx rhamni, the scientific name of the Brimstone butterfly, describes both the appearance and ecology of the species. Gonepteryx comes from the Greek words for angle and wing, describing the distinctive wing shape of the butterfly, while rhamni is dervied from one of its main caterpillar...

Some butterflies like it cold! We've been involved in a study that has found cold-loving species such as the Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary and Grizzled Skipper are at risk of local extinction as there is not enough habitat for them to cope with the effects of global warming.

Have you seen the first Comma butterfly of 2017?

This distinctive butterfly is one of the only UK species to have really jagged edges to its wings and it looks like a dead leaf when at rest.

The butterfly gets its name from a white comma mark on its hindwing. See [ Butrfli.es Link ] to learn more.

Last year the first sighting was reported in Cheshire on January 6th, so keep a look out and...

It might be a frosty and chilly week for most parts of the UK, but butterflies can still be seen in cold or damp weather!

On this day last year, we had sightings of Peacock and Speckled Wood butterflies.

Other butterflies, like this Small White, won't be seen until the Spring, but now is the time to find its chrysalis hibernating on sheds, fences and under windowsills. Its colour varies...

Ever come across a Chocolate-tip moth?!

This tasty sounding moth is actually a master of disguise. It cleverly becomes part of a tree branch when at rest.

Although the tips of its wings do appear to have been dipped in chocolate, we hope you find a chocolate orange rather than a chocolate moth in your stocking this year!

The Chocolate-tip can be found in the southern half of England and...
