Search For The Pearl-Bordered Fritillary
Saturday 18th May 2013 - 2pm
Fellover Brake, Tuckingmill, St. Breward.

This site still holds one of Cornwall’s finest colonies of the nationally threatened Pearl-Bordered Fritillary butterfly which can be seen over a wide area of well managed bracken covered hillside.

Walking boots are essential as the site slopes quite steeply and can be quite uneven in places. Orange Tip & Brimstone should also still be on the wing.

Leader – Phil Harris. Meet at SX089779, in small lay-by at Gam Bridge.

For details and directions phone Phil Harris on 07754 583101.

This event is being held in the national 'Save our Butterflies' week.
