Sat 25th January: Chudleigh Knighton Heath (south end) 10.30 am - 2.30 pm.

Park in the gateway near the dragonfly ponds and old railway at SX 839 769.  DIRECTIONS: From the A38 travelling from the Plymouth direction, take the exit slip for Chudleigh Knighton. At top of slip road turn left (heading for Bovey Tracey) and the gateway is 200 yards on the left. We will be coppicing and scrub clearing close to where a large glade has recently been created and Pearl-bordered Fritillary is present. Bow saws and other cutting tools will be useful but some DWT tools should be available 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.
