Butterfly safari time again – in two parts!

Sunday July 16th 10.30am start at Haugh Woods, the annual hunt for the White Admiral continues… With its characteristic gliding flight and striking bands of white across its brown/black upper wing, it isn’t white at all. For a chance to see this stunning butterfly, and others, join Martyn Davies, local butterfly expert, for a guided butterfly walk through Haugh Wood to Jones Hill Farm meadow.

Meet: Haugh Wood Car Park.

The walk to Jones Hill Farm is about ¾ mile.  Please book here to get a place as usual as numbers will be limited to 20. All welcome but this event is not aimed at children.
At 2 pm on July 16th we will be reconvening for our Hair Streak Safari.  Last year, to the delight of all on our butterfly safari, we saw 22 different butterfly species along the edges of the rides on south side of Haugh Wood, including the rarely seen purple hairstreak. With evocative names such as silver washed fritillary, white letter hairstreak, brimstone, and holly blue to conjure with, we were left with a sense of joy at a chance to have seen such a variety of butterflies fliting along the rides.  The walk will once again be led by Martyn Davies, who has written a definitive study of the Haugh White Letter Hairstreak.

Meet: Haugh Wood Car Park.

The walk is about 2 miles long, and again not aimed at children and limited to 20.
Please book here
