Action for Chequered Skipper

Action for Chequered Skipper

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 chequered skipper in Scotland.

The chequered skipper is a small, spring butterfly of damp, sheltered, sunny woodland glades and woodland edges. In the UK it now only occurs in Scotland, following its extinction in England in 1976. It was first found in Scotland in 1939 and is thought now only to occur within a 25-mile radius of Fort William.
