Butterfly recording is the foundation for protecting these beautiful animals. Simply by submitting your sightings of  butterflies to the UK recording scheme, Butterflies for the New Millennium, whether from garden buddleia, local walk or remote mountain top, you can make a real contribution to their conservation across the UK.
