Butterflies are easily the most enchanting and widely loved of all British insects. They flutter through our woodlands and meadows, in a kaleidoscope of dazzling colours. Coupled with their beauty, their lifecycle is nothing short of miraculous. Their metamorphosis from earthbound caterpillar to winged butterfly is a wonder of nature and symbolic to many people. In the Peak District National Park we are lucky to have a wide variety of butterfly species.

Byron Machin has spent his summers visiting every corner of the Peaks to survey the butterfly populations. In this talk he guides you through every species and the numerous nature reserves where you are likely to see them.

He is an independent publisher, film-maker and lecturer.
