Purple Hairstreak spotting at Gosforth Nature Reserve

Saturday 6 August, 5pm Р6pm

Purple Hairstreak butterflies live entirely on Oak trees and there is a healthy population in the reserve. They are very attractive but live in the tree tops and are difficult to see! Join reserve warden Paul Drummond for this drop in session to try and see these butterflies, which tend to be most active on sunny afternoons. Bring binoculars if you have them.

Meet on the woodland path just past the members hut near the reserve entrance.

Accompanied children 6+ welcome
