The annual National Butterfly Recorders' Meeting provides the latest information on butterfly trends from the national recording and monitoring schemes, new research findings from scientists, feedback from butterfly recorders across the UK and plenty of time to relax and chat over a buffet lunch with fellow enthusiasts.

As this year is Butterfly Conservation's 50th anniversary; Dr Martin Warren will be taking a retrospective look at the first 50 years of Butterfly Conservation while Professor Chris Thomas will be considering what the next 50 years hold for the UK's Lepidoptera.
