Gloucestershire: Mothing by Moonlight

Friday 26th August 2016, 8.30pm-11pm
Slimbridge Wetland Centre, Near Dursley, South-west Of Gloucester

Join the Gloucestershire Branch at this Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust event at Slimbridge. Though far less well known than their day-time cousins, there are 50 times more moths than butterflies, they are much more diverse, and their stories are much more amazing.

Adonis Blue

Gloucestershire: Groveridge Hill Field Trip

Sunday 28th August 2016, 2pm-4pm
Groveridge Banks, Brimpsfield, south of Cheltenham

If you missed the Selsley Common walk in June, join the Gloucestershire Branch for a second chance to see the beautiful Adonis Blue, as well as, we hope, a good selection of other butterflies. We will follow one of the new walks in the updated Butterfly walks in Gloucestershire booklet.

Red Admiral

Gloucestershire: Prinknash Butterfly Nectar Garden Open Day

Sunday 25th September 2016, 12pm-4.30pm
