Summer butterflies & flowers at Moor Copse

Look for summer butterflies and flowers in the woods and meadows of Moor Copse. Marbled White and Silver-washed Fritillary butterflies can be abundant.

In the hay meadows, we should see the flowers of Great Burnet, Pepper-saxifrage and Betony, together with many butterflies, grasshoppers and other insects.

Uneven ground, could be muddy, distance 2 miles.

Moor Copse is at Tidmarsh, between Theale and Pangbourne.

Meet at the reserve car park, on the east side of the A340, 200m north of the bridge over the M4.
