Sun 14th January: Chudleigh Knighton Heath (old railway area) 10.30 - 14.30.

Park in the gateway near the dragonfly ponds and old railway at SX 839 769 or on the adjoining road from Dunley Cross to the B3344 intersection road, but only where it is safe to do so. DIRECTIONS: From the A38 travelling from the Plymouth direction, take the exit slip for Chudleigh Knighton. At top road from the A38, turn left - heading for Bovey Tracey. The gateway that leads to the reserve is the first turning 200 yards on the left.

We will be coppicing and scrub clearing close to where a large glade has recently been created and where both pearl-bordered fritillaries and a very rare ant species are present. Bow saws and other cutting tools would be useful, but some DWT tools should be available on the day.

Joint DWT/BC event.
