Butterfly and moth event at Fineshade Woods on July 24

Have your say

A SPECIAL butterfly and moths event will be held at Fineshade Wood on Sunday.

Butterfly expert Doug Goddard will lead a guided walk through sunny glades and dappled paths, to discover the delights of the 27 species of butterflies known to live there.

The walk will start at 10.30am and costs £4 for adults and £2 for children. Admission for RSPB and Butterfly Conservation Trust members is half price. Places are strictly limited so advance booking is essential. Contact 01780 444691.

During the night a live trap will have been catching moths in the wood and they will be on show in the Little Barn all day, before being released unharmed.
