The Marsh Fritillary is threatened, not only in the UK but across Europe, and is a target species for the Species on the Edge Programme.

The wings of this beautiful butterfly are more brightly patterned than those of other fritillaries, with more heavily marked races being found in Scotland and Ireland. The larvae spin conspicuous webs that can easily be recorded in late summer.

Come and join us on a walk to look for these colourful butterflies in late May when they are on the wing.

Please bring a packed lunch and waterproofs, good walking boots advised as ground can be uneven and lumpy.

This event is being run as part of the Species on the Edge programme, which is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
