Upper Thames: Field Meeting

Small Blue
Upper Thames: Field Meeting
Saturday 20th May 2017: 11.00am
Pitstone Hill and Aldbury Nowers, Bucks

Join the Upper Thames Branch on a field trip looking for spring butterflies including Grizzled Skipper, Dingy Skipper and Green Hairstreak.

NB this is advertised for Sunday 20th May in the journal, which is not correct.

Aldbury Nowers was subjected to a radical surface scrape some years ago, revealing bare chalk. There has been gradual regeneration of the flora and it will be interesting to see how the butterflies have fared.

Please note there are steep slopes.

Meet at 11am in the National Trust car park, on Stocks Road, OS map 181, Grid ref: SP955149, nearest postcode HP23 5RX. 

The nearest station is Tring (London Midland from London Euston).
