92 days to go to National Insect Week

Haddon Hill and Haddon Moor Butterflies

Sunday, June 19, 2016 - 11:00 to 13:30

Join us on this moorland edge site above Wimbleball Reservoir, where Heath Fritillary is the prime species. Haddon Moor is a BC Reserve, holding wet grassland with Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary, Small Skipper, Large Skipper, Green Hairstreak, Marbled White and Small Heath butterflies, as well as appreciable botanical interest.

Meet at 11am prompt at the parking area on the north side of the B3190 at Grid ref: SS979285, nearest postcode TA4 2DN, about a mile west of Upton.

If you wish to visit both sites, best to bring a packed lunch.

If the weather is wet, the walk will probably be cancelled; any unavoidable last-minute changes will be posted on the Branch website.
