Upper Thames Butterfly Sites - Berkshire

This page contains a list of recommended butterfly sites to be found in Berkshire. It is by no means exhaustive, but includes the majority of those sites which appear regularly in Butterfly Sightings. All the sites mentioned here have year-round free public access unless otherwise stated. If you can recommend other good butterfly sites in Berkshire with public access, please contact the Webmaster.
You will need a decent map to find many of these places. The Ordnance Survey Explorer series (1:25,000) is recommended, although the Landranger series (1:50,000) will be adequate in most cases. Locations have been given using the National Grid Reference system, marked on all Ordnance Survey maps.
