Sun 3rd November: Chudleigh Knighton Heath (north end) 10.30 am - 2.30 pm.

Meet at Dunley Cross near Chudleigh Knighton [SX 837 775]. This is mid-way between Chudleigh Knighton and Bovey Tracey on the B3344 and a crossroads for Hennock, Bovey Tracey, Chudleigh Knighton and Kingsteignton. There are several laybys to park in around this junction on the Kingsteignton and Chudleigh Knighton sides.

We will be clearing scrub, removing some trees and raking up the litter. This will benefit Pearl and Small Pearl-bordered Fritillary, which breed here. Devon Wildlife Trust will bring some tools on the day.

Most of our winter work days are targeted at helping specific butterfly species but always benefit many other wildlife species that prefer more warmth and light that our clearing work provides. It is usually ok to just turn up on the day but if adverse weather threatens cancellation or for any other queries a contact number is provided. Participants can attend for just part of the day if they wish but should always tell the contact person if they leave early. Bring lunch, a drink, waterproof clothing, stout footwear or boots and gardening gloves.
