Butterfly walk at Heddon Valley

Sunday, June 19, 2016 - 11:00 to 15:00

Joint meeting of Taw and Exmoor Branch of The British Naturalists' Association and Devon Branch of Butterfly Conservation.

Meet 11.00am at the National Trust car park SS 655 481 (there is a small charge) for a two hour walk. This is one of the best butterfly sites in Devon where Pearl and Small Pearl-bordered Fritillaries, High Brown and Dark Green Fritillaries, Green Hairstreak and Silver-washed Fritillaries may all be seen. There are some very steep slopes and Brambles so long trousers and stout footwear essential -  the bramble flowers do attract the butterflies though! The Hunters' Inn makes a good pub lunch afterwards. Optional stop at Ladies Mile after lunch. Leaders Paul Butter on Tel: 01837 82378 & Brian Sims.
