Butterfly and Moth Walk

Join us for a morning of moths and butterflies with local expert and enthusiast, Rob Fitter. The morning will start with identifying the moths in the traps set out the previous evening - all of which will then be released unharmed. We will then take a leisurely walk across the moss at the beautiful Hay Bridge Nature Reserve looking for the rare Large Heath butterfly.

If time, and the weather, allows we will extend the walk to explore some of the other habitats at Hay Bridge in search of more rare butterfly species such as the Small Pearl Bordered, Dark Green and High Brown Fritillaries.

Come and join us for a wonderful walk and learn about the beautiful butterflies and moths of the Rusland Valley.

Suitable for children.

Under 18's must be accompanied by an adult.
