Join the West Midlands Branch at Monkwood in Worcestershire, where you can take part in one OR two events today! It's completely up to you...

This reserve is on an ancient woodland site and is jointly owned by Butterfly Conservation and the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust. This is a great spot for butterflies and birdwatching! 

Moth Breakfast 9AM: This is your chance to learn more about the amazing world of moths and to find out which species are in the area. Local experts Mike Southall and Mike Williams will be able to open up a moth trap from the night before and show you what moths are inside. Don't worry - they will be very sleepy and will even rest on your hand! The UK has 2500 species of moth and many are very colourful and are often mistaken for butterflies - what will you find?!

Bacon rolls will be on offer, but please bring your own drinks! For more information on where to meet, please email Mike Williams at @email or call: 01299 824860.
