New leaflet celebrates the butterflies of the Malvern Hills

Craig Gibbons 11th Jun, 2018

A NEW leaflet celebrating the butterflies of the Malvern Hills has been launched.

The free leaflet has been created by the West Midlands Butterfly Conservation with the support of the Malvern Hills Trust, the Malvern Hills Area of Oustanding Natural Beauty and Natural England.

It highlights all 33 species of butterfiles found on the hills as well as some of the day-flying moths.

There is information about each species and a large map to show the best sites to locate them.

Mel Mason, from West Midlands Butterfly Conservation who leads the organisation’s work on the Malvern Hills, said “We hope our new guide will promote awareness of the important butterflies to be found on the Malvern Hills, provide help to identify them and encourage more people to become involved in their conservation.”

The leaflet is available from the Malvern Hills Trust offices in Manor House on Grange Road as well as the Malvern Tourist Information Centre on Church Street.
