  • Butterflies of Surrey Revisited
    Butterflies of Surrey Revisited by Ken Willmott

    In 1995 Surrey Wildlife Trust published Butterflies of Surrey by Graham Collins, the first of the Surrey Wildlife Atlas series. That original volume was a one-author work of 87 pages; it sold out long ago and the time has come for a revisit. Much has changed since 1995: Surrey has lost Pearl-bordered and Small Pearl-bordered Fritillaries, Duke of Burgundy and the Wall, while Glanville Fritillary has been controversially introduced in the Farnham area. Of our current 42 resident or regular migrant species, 24 have declined in abundance since 2000. This 2013 volume is neither a revision nor a second edition. It is a new book that expands the scope of the original volume, takes advantage of additional and more diverse data as well as improved technology, and is based on records up to 2012.
