First sightings of butterflies in Yorkshire reported here in 2021
IMPORTANT: We can continue to receive your sightings but please remember that, in accordance with current UK Government restrictions, you MUST NOT make any journeys away from home in order to record butterflies and moths, as these would be considered non-essential journeys. More information on recording during the current circumstances can be found on the Butterfly Conservation website.
To qualify as a first sighting, butterflies must be seen outside and be active.
NB that sightings sent only to VC recorders do not automatically appear here and sightings not sent to VC recorders may be omitted from reports.
