Join us on this guided walk, where you could see the beautiful Black-veined moth! This could also be your last chance to see the Duke of Burgundy butterfly before their flight season is officially over for the year.

The beautiful Black-veined moth is one of our eight target species for Kent's Magnificent Moths project. The moth can be seen resting on vegetation by day and nectars in the sunshine. 

When at rest, the wings are held flat, but sometimes (when feeding or temporarily resting at flowers) the wings can be closed or partly closed over it's back like a butterfly.

The Duke of Burgundy was once found on just four sites around Kent, but thanks to a decade of conservation effort, this rare butterfly is now found on 13 sites across the county - including the location of this guided walk!

If you would like to join us, everyone is to meet at 10.30am at Crundale Church car park - the nearest post code is CT4 7EL or use map grid reference: TR085486.
