This page is intended to serve as an indication of the butterflies and moths recently seen in the Yorkshire region (the Yorkshire Moths group also provides good information on moth sightings). Sightings don't have to be rare or unusual, the idea is to give other website users an idea of what to look out for. If you have sightings to report, send an e-mail to the webmaster with details of what you saw, the date you saw it and the general area in which it was. If you took any pictures on that day that you would like to share then include your favourite picture with the e-mail (we are looking for current photos, rather than your best pictures from the archives). We encourage you to submit your sightings to your Vice County Recorder details of whom can be found on the Recorders page. There is a standard form for recording butterflies which can be downloaded here and there is a checklist and notes about moth recording in Yorkshire which can be downloaded here. Click on the small picture or the links in the individual reports to see any attached photos - please note that images are the property of the photographer and should not be reproduced without permission.
