Time/Meeting place:

10:30 at the allotment entrance on Stafford Road opposite the west end of Bedford Road. We aim to finish by 12:30-13:00 but stay as long as you wish.


The streets around Stafford Road usually have parking spaces. There is approx. ½ mile walk to the meeting place from Ruislip Gardens Underground Station (Central Line) along Bedford Road. (Metropolitan) to Ealing Broadway (District and National rail). There is also the E7 bus (every 20 minutes) from Ruislip. Please note we are not meeting at Ruislip Gardens Underground station - do not take the Yeading Brook Walk.


Help us search for Brown Hairstreak eggs and learn the skills to help you look for new sites. There is approx. 1km walk to the site along footpaths and fields, maybe muddy. Wrap up warm; bring gloves and suitable footwear and a hand lens if possible. More dates at different locations may be added later in the year or early 2022.

Additional information

Before the hunt, we shall be holding a Zoom presentation on Wednesday 1st December to help guide you through the techniques of searching for Brown Hairstreak eggs
