Field trips are for everyone. Rough terrain over fields and woods could, most regrettably, make access impossible for some people with mobility issues. Please check with the leader if in doubt. Field trips can be enjoyed by everyone, whether butterfly-novice or expert.

Photographers, children (with adult supervision) and first time field trippers, YOU ARE ALL WELCOME! If the weather looks inclement then please phone the leader of the field trip advertised. I will change the date of my field trips if the 5-day forecast suggests the weather is going to be wet and windy, so look out for this on the Branch website and on the Hampshire Butterfly Facebook page.
