Butterfly/Moth events in Gloucestershire

Gloucestershire: Mothing by Moonlight

Friday 26th August 2016, 8.30pm-11pm

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.

Gloucestershire: Groveridge Hill Field Trip

Sunday 28th August 2016, 2pm-4pm

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.

Gloucestershire: Prinknash Butterfly Nectar Garden Weeding Session

Tuesday 20th September 2016, 2.30pm-4.30pm

Join the Gloucestershire Branch preparing for the next open day of the Prinknash Butterfly Nectar Garden. Helpers are always welcome, but if you are not a regular, then please phone in advance, in case of a late change of time or day.
