During the construction of the road, an imaginative plan was devised to create new herb-rich downland on the slopes alongside it. Informal monitoring of butterflies started in 2012 and a formal transect was set up in 2018. Last year 27 species were recorded including Chalkhill Blue which first appeared in 2019 and there were good numbers of Small Blue, Adonis Blue and Small Tortoiseshell.
Meet at 2.00 pm at the truncated end of the Broadmayne road where it meets the relief road, map reference SY 673 859. N.B. Access is only possible from the eastern side of the relief road.
