Join us for a field session to practise your identification skills for summer butterflies and day-flying moths. This will take place at The Park Trust’s Howe Park Wood: an ancient woodland south-west of Milton Keynes. It supports a rich variety of wildlife and has excellent facilities.

The focus will be on building your confidence in the accurate separation of common species from scarce species, not a long species list.

You will get the most out of this event if you have attended Nick Bowles’ online Zoom training on the key points of Identification (4th July), Booking here:     Meeting ID: 894 7627 8844     Passcode: 080781
