Description:  We will walk north along the flowery shoreline cliffs. There is plenty of rockrose growing here which is the foodplant of Northern Brown Argus butterfly. It has been 10 years since the last record of this species here but hopefully we will be able to show that it is still thriving at this site.

What’s needed:  Bring a packed lunch, stout footwear and a happy face.

Any other information:  The trip will take place either on the Saturday or the Sunday, whichever has the best weather forecast. Therefore you must contact Pete a few days prior to the weekend to find out which day it’s going to be.
