The Somerset & Bristol Branch covers the ceremonial county of Somerset and the city and county of Bristol.
If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Somerset and Bristol Branch.
Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, we were only able to host a few Guided Walks in July and August.
Reports from these walks are in Arion 119. We hope to be able to offer the full programme in 2022.
Our branch magazine, The Arion is produced and distributed to our members three times a year.
Sue, our editor is always looking for content - so please get in touch if you would like to contribute.
Our next meeting is the Spring Social that will be held on Saturday 12th March 2022.
We are planning to hold this at Ruiston village hall. Further information in the New Year.
Our Facebook Group is a where members can share their sightings, post photos, ask advice, and share butterfly & moth chat with others.
For privacy purposes this is a private group. Please ask to join the group.
The officers and members of the branch committee look after the running of the branch, manage the reserves and organise activities.
Members and volunteers also play an active role in running the branch.
The first sightings reports shows the first confirmed sighting of butterflies in Somerset and Bristol sent to the Branch Butterfly Records Coordinator.

We are in the process of creating this new website - more pages will be added shortly.
