Sat 18th January: Miltor Mator Common near Kingskerswell 10.30 am - 2.30 pm.

Meet at Dainton railway bridge [SX 853 666] between Ipplepen and Kingskerswell. Best to park in nearby Dainton village and walk to the meeting point as parking is very limited. There is a short muddy slope on the way into Miltor Mator so wellies or boots advised. Bring cutting tools for removing scrub and small trees, gardening gloves and lunch.  Please note that we shall run this event even if the day is wet (wearing  waterproofs!).

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.
