Saturday 22 July 11.00am – 1.00pm

Join David Stebbings, Butterfly Conservation, on this walk through the flower rich grasslands of this former colliery site, now converted into a country park, looking for butterflies and moths. Target species – Small Skipper, Ringlet, Common Blue and Small Heath. Plus how to identify the different species of Burnet moths and Carpet moths. Easy walking but uneven in places so stout footwear recommended.

Meet at the car park near High Weetslade Farm on the B1319 near its junction with the A189, Grid Reference NZ260723.
