This event centres on the Humble Glades area of this unique NNR and will encompass several glades, mostly recently created by Natural England, woodland areas, and the beach itself. Warden Tom Sunderland is keen to get Wood White butterfly records from these glades, to assess the success of the management work being undertaken. This event takes place during Big Butterfly Count.
