Species to look out for

Welcome

AdmiralThe Cheshire & Peak District branch was established in 1985 with the aims of promoting the conservation of butterflies and moths, together with their habitats in Cheshire, Wirral, South Manchester and the Peak District.

It promotes its activities at local shows and conservation fairs, carries out research and recording work, arranges talks and presentations to interested bodies and is actively involved in supporting the work of other conservation groups.

If you live in the region and are a member of Butterfly Conservation you automatically become a member of the Cheshire & Peak District branch.

Events

Cheshire And Peak: Field Trip

Saturday 25th June 2016, 10.00am-11.00am

The target species on this field trip is White-letter Hairstreak butterflies. The visit will last about one hour and will involve easy walking of no more than half a mile, although some may wish to explore further afield where many common species may be found.

Cheshire And Peak: Transect and Survey Training

Saturday 16th July 2016, 10.30am-1.00pm

The walk is flat on an excellent surface, so it will be suitable for everyone. We will begin the tour shortly before the transect training event, so we expect a very lively day at the Butterfly Park.
