Sending in your butterfly and moth records to us
is essential if we are to continue our conservation work. We welcome information on
sightings from anywhere within our three counties of Berkshire, Buckinghamshire or
Oxfordshire. Anyone can send in records, whether or not you are a
Butterfly Conservation, although if you are not a member we do hope that you will
seriously consider becoming one! Records must be sent to the recorders listed below
for inclusion in our database, even if you have already sent some information to any
of our Champions or to the Webmaster for the website Sightings Pages.
All butterfly records for Berkshire, Buckinghamshire
or Oxfordshire should be sent to the Upper Thames Branch Butterfly Records Officer.

Butterfly recording forms can be downloaded here as either Microsoft Word, Excel or Adobe PDF files. Please use the Casual Recording Form if you have records from several different locations. The Site Recording Form can be used if you have several records from just one particular site. If you have a lot of records to enter from different locations you might find it easier to use the Butterfly Records Spreadsheet:
Atlas recording - can you help us fill
To help you orient where these gaps are, the second map shows the major cities and towns in our area. We particularly need records from: Milton Keynes/N. Bucks, the areas around Banbury, south-east of Oxford, south of Witney, NW of Newbury and between Wallingford and Reading.
Below we have maps of records for a few common species from
2010-2012 - these show additional gaps at the species level indicating where more visits are needed.
Any help you can give us with recording in any of these gaps will be very welcome. Please contact Jim Asher for further details. If you would like to help with recording within a particular 10km square, please contact Jan Haseler.
