Thrislington Plantation, Sedgefield

Outdoor Event, 11am

Join members of the Midweek Botany Group and entomologists for a day looking at the relationships between insects and plants.

Thrislington Plantation National Nature Reserve has a wide range of plants including Perennial Flax, orchids, heleborines, Blue Moor Grass, Small Scabious and Rock-Rose.

If it is a fine day there should be plenty of insects with several species of butterfly such as Northern Brown Argus, Ringlet, Common Blue and Small Heath.

The reserve lies between the villages of Ferryhill and Cornforth and access is from the minor road between Cornforth and Mainsforth at grid reference NZ309324 (near to the quarry). Meet in the laybay near the reserve entrance, parking is limited, so car-sharing would be an advantage.
