I have a passion for butterflies. Often the first sign that spring has truely arrived is the sight of the brimstone butterfly, a teaser for what's to come later in the year. I share this passion on line via my web site British Butterflies which features many of my photographs and detailed descriptions of all the species found in the UK.
I'm also a committee member for the Warwickshire Branch of Butterfly Conservation.
As you may have already noticed, I have a strong interest in wildlife and conservation. Sadly, our wildlife and wild places are disapearing at an alarming rate and its clear that current government policies and protection are wofully inadequate. Over two thirds of mammal species have declined over the last 50 years, we are down to our last couple of percent of traditional wild flower meadows and whats left of our ancient woodlands is slowly disapearing. There's nothing natural about this, and it can be stopped but only if our priorities change and govenment policy changes. In the end, we will all pay the price if we continue on our current path.
