General advice and information For all outdoor events participants should bring suitable outdoor clothing, waterproofs and boots or similar. Bring a packed lunch for whole day events, and sun cream and plenty of water in hot weather. General safety advice will be given before all our events but we ask all who attend to take personal responsibility for their own safety and possessions, and to pay special regard to trip hazards and the likely presence of ticks. Before starting, please advise walk leader of any medical or other conditions which could lead to you being unable to complete the walk. If you require further information or wish to check whether an event has been postponed or cancelled due to poor weather, please contact the walk leader before setting out.
We will be supporting the national Big Butterfly Count (Friday 12 July to Sunday 4 August 2019) by encouraging butterfly walk participants to take part. All you need do is record one or more times during this period for 15 minutes in your own garden, a local park, nature reserve etc, then submit the records online. Our walk leaders will bring survey forms, but full details available at www.bigbutterflycount.org/
