Action for Pearl-Bordered Fritillary

Action for Pearl-Bordered Fritillary

This note summarises the action being undertaken by Forestry Commission Scotland (now Scottish Forestry), either ourselves or in partnership with others, to help conserve the pearl-bordered fritillary in Scotland.

The pearl-bordered fritillary is primarily a spring butterfly of sheltered, sunny woodland glades and woodland edges. A UKBAP Priority species, it is one of the most rapidly declining butterflies in Britain and Ireland, although the declines in Scotland are less severe.
