Species to look out for
Welcome to the Devon Branch of Butterfly Conservation.
If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Devon branch.
Join the Devon Branch for two separate walks (11.30am or 1pm) looking for Brown Hairstreak butterflies and their eggs. Surveying for eggs on the Blackthorn hedges will be shown, so you will be able to check your home patches of Blackthorn.
