Moth Morning and Butterfly Walk

Location: Hay Bridge Nature Reserve, Low Hay Bridge, Bouth, LA12 8JG. Please note that parking is limited so please car share if you can.

The Rusland Horizons Butterfly and Moth project Wings in the Woods is continuing with several events planned for this year. We will be working in partnership with Butterfly Conservation to complement and support some of their events, which will provide an opportunity to see, study and help conserve these beautiful insects in the Rusland Valley.

On Saturday 15 June 2019 there will be a Moth Morning and Butterfly Walk. This will involve opening several moth traps which are placed around the reserve the night before and marvel at the wonderful moths we have caught and record the species before they are all released unharmed.

There will then be a walk out across the mosses to survey the Large Heath butterflies and if there is time, a walk round the woodlands and meadows of the reserve to look for other butterflies such as Small Pearl Bordered Fritillary.

The event is suitable for all ages and families are welcome, but all children must be accompanied by an adult.

In case of bad weather on the 15 June there is a reserve date of Sunday 16 June.
