The Butterfly Isles: A Summer In Search Of Our Emperors And Admirals

by Patrick Barkham
£9.99   paperback  Granta Books (2011)

The Butterfly Isles: A Summer In Search Of Our Emperors And Admirals by Patrick Barkham Butterflies animate our summers but the fifty-nine species found in the British Isles can be surprisingly elusive. Some bask unseen at the top of trees in London parks; others lurk at the bottom of damp bogs in Scotland. A few survive for months while other ephemeral creatures only fly for three days. Several are virtually extinct. This bewitching book charts Patrick Barkham's quest to find each of them - from the Adonis Blue to the Dingy Skipper - in one unforgettable summer.
 
Wry, attentive, full of infectious delight and curiosity, written with a beautifully light touch, The Butterfly Isles is set to become a classic of British nature writing.
