Butterfly/Moth events in Gloucestershire
Join the Warwickshire Branch for this out-of-county butterfly walk (Oakridge Lynch, Glos), which will focus on seeing the Marsh Fritillary butterfly, which is usually found in good numbers at Strawberry Banks. The reserve also supports several other interesting butterfly species and is great for wild flowers, including Wild Columbine and Lesser Butterfly Orchid and the elusive Hazel Dormouse...
BC's Rough Bank reserve has a fantastic range of butterflies, moths and wildflowers. This walk is in part to celebrate National Meadows Day and is also a Stroud Nature 2017 event...
A wide range of conservation groups and other wildlife-related people such as artists and the canal trust come together to celebrate wildlife in the Stroud area. There is something for everyone and we would especially like to encourage young people and families to come along....
Butterfly walks booklet
The 2nd Edition of the Butterfly Walks in Gloucestershire booklet is now available from the Branch Treasurer.
As well as walks, we've added an extra list of good butterfly sites around the county and a guide to the flight times of our butterflies to help you decide which walk to do and when.
Take a look at the latest photographs from Gloucestershire Branch of Butterfly Conservation.
