We will be looking in particular for Silver-spotted Skipper, of which there is a good colony at this location. We should also see Chalkhill Blues plus a range of other downland butterflies. If time permits, we will move on to Shipton Bellinger to look for Brown Hairstreaks. Bring a packed lunch if you wish.
Estimated end time about 2:30pm

Location: Start point:  Benin Road, Perham Down, Wilts, SP11 9FQ.
