Meet at the Quoile Countryside Centre, 5 Quay Rd, Downpatrick BT30 7JB - J495470
The Quoile Pondage is well known to our birding community, but is also a haven for our butterflies. We recently discovered a small population of Cryptic Wood Whites at the site, but their core habitat area is currently being overtaken by scrub and needs some gardening to get it back into condition for next year’s breeding season.
All tools are provided, and there will be flasks of hot water, tea, coffee and of course, cake!
Please bring a packed lunch and wear warm, weatherproof clothing and strong boots or wellies. We provide gloves but you may wish to bring your own.
No prior experience is necessary, come and pitch in and help us
make a difference for our butterflies and moths, great craic, great company and a great cause!
