Sun 28th July: Alners' Gorse BC Reserve, Dorset 11 am

Meet at grid ref ST 736 100. From the A30 at Sherborne take the A352 south, then the A3030 through Bishops Caundle on to the junction of B3143 to King's Stag where you turn left at the crossroads towards Hazelbury Bryan. There is verge-side parking on the left-hand side of the road and a small car park inside the gate to the reserve which can get slippery in wet weather.

Come for a day at this very interesting reserve which hosts four Hairstreaks and is one of the best places to photograph Purple and Brown Hairstreaks and possibly White-letter Hairstreak.

Bring drink, a picnic and sun protection.

After lunch there is an opportunity to go on to Rooksmoor.

Joint event with Dorset Branch.

Leaders Paul Butter, Nigel Spring and Martin Warren. Tel 07807 680 455 for Paul or 07981 776 767 for Nigel.
