The Dorset branch of Butterfly Conservation and EuCAN will be collaborating with the Dorset Wildlife Trust on tasks on a variety of sites on Portland on the second Friday of each month.

Today we shall be making our annual maintenance visit to this little reserve. Despite its size, it is an important site for butterflies. The main job will be to cut and rake off the rank grass, straggly bramble and ivy and there will also be encroaching scrub regrowth to cut back. Bring loppers, bowsaw and secateurs if you have them - and your refreshments and lunch. Please let me know if you would like to attend and include your phone number so that I can call or text you if we need to change the plans because of the weather Map for directions:

Meet 10.00 am in Church Ope Cove car park, grid reference ST 695712.
