Species to look out for
Welcome to the Norfolk Branch of Butterfly Conservation.
If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Norfolk branch.
The sun was shining and it was a warm sunny day for our trip to Hickling. Unbelievable but true.
True to form the day broke, cloudy, cool and looking as though it could rain. Well we are used to this for butterfly walks. In spite of the weather thirteen people gathered in the car park at Holt Country Park. It was very overcast and cool, the conditions not at all propitious for our quest.
In the event it was quieter than expected with the traps Sharon Hearle had set the previous evening relatively empty and the day flying moths themselves a little thin on the ground
Perfect weather for our walks at Hillfield Nursery, Thorpe-next-Haddiscoe
