Interested in butterflies and their presence in the British Isles?
Then this unique DVD guide package is essential for you!
If you are at all interested in beautiful butterflies and perhaps conserving this rapidly changing feature of the British countryside and gardens, then you should get to know more with `Jewels in the Air'.
The wealth of information available in a compact package includes:
- NEW interviews with the author highlighting the changes to the environment over the last 30 years and how the butterfly population reflects this.

- Descriptions of the major habitats of butterflies: Woodland - Grassland - Chalk & Limestone Grassland - Fens - Moorland - Heathland - Gardens - Hedgerows
- Listing and illustrations of the food sources of butterflies and where they can be found. Often, depending on the preferences of each butterfly species, these food sources and their location are the keys to butterfly conservation and encouragement.
- Maps showing the general and sometimes very limited distribution of each species as at the end of the 20th century.
- Review of the place of butterflies in history
Narrated by Roger Kemp himself, this comprehensive DVD tour of British butterflies in their natural habitats, endorsed by Butterfly Conservation, is a timeless and treasured record of the British countryside.
