Butterflies & Moths Of Southern Poland

From: £Contact us

Enjoy southern Poland’s fascinating Lepidoptera in the company of a knowledgeable local naturalist, exploring the surrounding hills, forests and meadows by day and setting up simple moth-traps at night.

We begin in the ‘Jurassic Hills' in search of violet copper, and some exciting ‘blues', before heading to Ponidzie, home to Chapman's and eastern baton blues, as well as birds such as Ortolan bunting. Next we spend two nights in the Pieniny Mountains, where we'll look for Apollo and Berger's clouded yellow, and look for the acid-loving plants, butterflies and dragonflies of the Orawa peat-bogs. We end in the Tatra Mountains where Shepherd's fritillary, mountain green-veined white and dewy ringlet are found, plus chamois and brown bear.
