92 days to go to National Insect Week

Selsley Common Guided Walk

Friday, June 17, 2016 - 11:00 to 13:00

A Gloucestershire Branch Butterfly Conservation event.

Join the Gloucestershire Branch on this walk across Selsley Common. We will be mainly looking for Dingy Skipper, Large Skipper, Small Blue, Common Blue, Adonis Blue and Small Heath butterflies. There are also a lot of wild flowers, so with luck we will see both Bee and Fragrant Orchids.

This event is also part of Stroud Nature 2016.

Meet at 11am at Selsley Common:
From the large roundabout on the A419 near Sainsbury’s, take the B4066 (Selsley Hill) south for 2-2.5 km. There are car parks on the roadside at Grid ref: SO828026, nearest postcode GL5 5PL.
