National Insect Week returns in 2020

Field Meeting at Cerne Abbas with Bournemouth Natural Science Society

Sunday, June 24, 2018 - 10:30 to 12:00

Cerne Abbas Village Hall Car Park (and Picnic site) Kettle Road DT27GY. ST663014.

Leader: Mark Spencer

The car park is outside the village near to the hall and close to the Giant viewpoint. There are some very steep slopes on this site but we should be following the path around, but not for the unfit!

Main target species are Marsh Fritillary and Adonis Blue, but lots more insects and flowers on site!

Bring packed lunch, liquids, good walking boots and a stick if required!

Age limits or guidance

Suitable for those with a decent level of exercise fitness

Cost details

Free but donations welcome
