The chalk downland habitat south of Black Hill is still rich in plant and butterfly species but increasingly threatened by scrub invasion. We are planning to start work on habitat improvement during the coming winter season but first would like to know more about the species present. If you would like to join in with this exploratory walk, you would be very welcome, members and non-members. We would hope to see Chalkhill Blues and perhaps Dark Green Fritillaries as well as the more common species, especially if the hot weather holds.
Meet at 1.45pm at Barton Meadows Farm ST 662 005 (down shady farm track on left of A352 from Cerne to Dorchester, appox half a mile south of Cerne Abbas) for a 2.00pm start. The circular walk will take about 2 hours
