Small Pearl-bordered Fritillaries at Waskerley, County Durham

Thursday 25 June, 10.30am-3pm

The Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary is one of Durham’s rarest butterflies. A consortium of conservation organisations is working to restore suitable habitats for this species in the Waskerley area. Anne Porter from Durham Wildlife Trust and Dave Liddle from Durham County Council will lead this walk to look for the butterfly during its peak flight period. They will also talk about its life-cycle, habitat requirements and the work that they are doing to conserve this attractive butterfly.

Free but booking is required to manage numbers. Please contact the Society Office to book.

Leaders: Anne Porter & Dave Liddle
