Dorset & Somerset Branch: Guided Walk - Cerne Giant Hill

Duke of Burgundy
Dorset & Somerset Branch: Guided Walk - Cerne Giant Hill
Sunday 4th June 2017, 11.00am-3.30pm
Cerne Abbas, Dorchester, Dorset

The Somerset and Bristol Branch are joining the Dorset Branch for this guided walk over rich chalk downland, seeking a variety of late spring and early summer butterflies.

Recent years have seen an increase in colonies of Duke of Burgundy and possibly the return of the Adonis Blue.

It will also be a good time for the Marsh Fritillary, as well as Green Hairstreak with Dingy and Grizzled Skippers.  

Please be prepared for steep slopes in places, and do bring a packed lunch for an extended walk into late afternoon.

Meet at 11.00 am in the picnic area car park opposite the Village hall. Map reference ST 663 015. Nearest post code: DT2 7LA.
